Representative Text

1 Precious Savior, may I live only for Thee.
Spend the powers Thou dost give, only for Thee.

2 Be my spirit’s deep desire only for Thee.
May my intellect aspire only for Thee.

3 In my joys may I rejoice only for Thee.
In my choices make my choice only for Thee.

4 Meekly may I suffer grief only for Thee.
Gratefully accept relief only for Thee.

5 Be my smiles and be my tears only for Thee.
Be my young and riper years only for Thee.

6 Be my singing and my sighing only for Thee.
Be my sickness and my dying only for Thee.

7 Be my rising, be my glory only for Thee.
Be my whole eternity only for Thee.
