Que mi vida entera esté

Representative Text

1 Que mi vida entera esté
consagrada a ti, Señor;
Que a mis manos pueda guiar
el impulso de tu amor.

Lávame en la sangre, Salvador,
Límpiame de toda mi maldad.
Traigo a mi vida, para ser, Señor,
tuya por la eternidad.
[Quiero entregarme a ti, Señor,
Quiero siempre andar en santidad.
Traigo a mi vida, para ser, Señor,
tuya por la eternidad.]

2 Que mis pies tan sólo en pos
de los santos puedan ir,
Y que a ti, Señor, mi voz
se complazca en bendecir. [Coro]

3 Que mi tiempo todo esté
consagrado a tu loor,
Que mis labios al hablar,
hablen sólo de tu amor. [Coro]

4 Toma, ¡oh Dios! mi voluntad,
y hazla tuya, nada más;
Toma, sí, mi corazón;
por tu trono lo tendrás. [Coro]

5 Toma tú mi amor, que hoy
a tus pies vengo a poner;
Toma todo lo que soy;
todo tuyo quiero ser. [Coro]

Havergal, Frances Ridley, daughter of the Rev. W. H. Havergal, was born at Astley, Worcestershire, Dec. 14, 1836. Five years later her father removed to the Rectory of St. Nicholas, Worcester. In August, 1850, she entered Mrs. Teed's school, whose influence over her was most beneficial.

Author (refrain): William J. Kirkpatrick

William J. Kirkpatrick (b. Duncannon, PA, 1838; d. Philadelphia, PA, 1921) received his musical training from his father and several other private teachers. A carpenter by trade, he engaged in the furniture business from 1862 to 1878. He left that profession to dedicate his life to music, serving as music director at Grace Methodist Church in Philadelphia. Kirkpatrick compiled some one hundred gospel song collections; his first, Devotional Melodies (1859), was published when he was only twenty-one years old. Many of these collections were first published by the John Hood Company and later by Kirkpatrick's own Praise Publishing Company, both in Philadelphia. Bert Polman Go to person page >
