Consecration and Dedication

Full Text

1 What shall I render to the LORD,
what shall my offering be,
for all the gracious benefits
He has bestowed on me?

2 Salvation's cup my soul will take
while to the LORD I pray,
and with His people I will meet,
my thankful vows to pay.

3 Not lightly does the LORD permit
His chosen saints to die;
from death Thou hast delivered me,
Thy servant, LORD, am I.

4 The sacrifice of praise I bring

and with His people I will meet,
my thankful vows to pay.

5 Within His house, the house of pray'r,
my soul shall bless the LORD,
and praises to His holy Name
let all His saints accord.
