Representative Text

1 Our willing service, Lord to Thee,
We pledge ourselves to give,
For Thou hast bought us with Thy blood
And died that we might live;
We pledge ourselves by grace to yield,
Obedience to Thy laws,
Devotion to Thy sacred truth,
Thy kingdom and Thy cause.

2 We pledge ourselves with filial love
To follow Thy commands,
To help the Church word and deed,
And aid our pastor’s hands;
Be this our one supreme desire,
Our purpose, thought, and aim,
In whatsoever we shall do,
To glorify Thy name.

3 And so we pledge ourselves to walk,
That those around may see,
The calm reflection of a light
That only shines from Thee;
Oh, help us, Lord, our pledge to keep;
We need Thy constant care
To guard our hearts from every sin,
Our feet from every snare.
