My life, dear Lord, I give to TheeIn humble faith and loyalty,To be Thine own in what is planned,And heed with joy Thy love’s command.
Show me the trails that turn and climbThrough lonely deeps to heights sublime,Yet never lose their touch with life,Its endless round of peace and strife.
I pray for tasks that ease the loadOn other hearts along the road;And love forgiving, patient, tried,To quicken faith and hope beside.
Gird me with light whose rays and heatShall blaze a path to Thy blest seat,That halting steps, no more afraid,May reach the goals for which they’ve prayed.
O grant me grace to serve with TheeIn love unfailing, pure, and free;Guide me in trails which few have trod,Whose winding ways lead home to God.
