Representative Text

1 What wouldst Thou have me to do, Lord?
Whatever it may be,
Though mine is a weak and trembling hand,
I’m willing to do at Thy command
Anything, Lord, for Thee,
Anything, Lord, anything, Lord, anything, Lord, for Thee;
I’m willing to do at Thy command
Anything, Lord, for Thee.

2 Where wouldst Thou have me to go, Lord?
Wherever it may be,
My feet Thou hast placed on the King’s highway,
Thy grace doth enable me to say,
Anywhere, Lord, for Thee,
Anywhere, Lord, anywhere, Lord, anywhere, Lord for Thee;
Thy grace doth enable me to say,
Anywhere, Lord, for Thee.

3 What wouldst Thou have me to yield, Lord?
Whatever it may be,
All, all that I have and am is Thine,
And willingly, gladly I resign
Ev’rything, Lord, for Thee,
Ev’rything, Lord, ev’rything, Lord, ev’rything, Lord, for Thee;
Now willingly, gladly I resign,
Ev’rything, Lord for Thee.

4 What is Thy will for me now, Lord?
Whatever it may be,
Though worldlings may seek what the world can give,
I covenant here henceforth to live
Ev’ryday, Lord, for Thee,
Ev’ry day, Lord, ev’ry day, Lord, ev’ry day, Lord, for Thee;
I covenant here henceforth to live
Every day, Lord for Thee.
