1. Savior, while my heart is tender, I would yield that heart to Thee. All my pow’rs to Thee surrender, Thine, and only Thine, to be.
2. Take me now, Lord Jesus, take me; Let my youthful heart be Thine; Thy devoted servant make me; Fill my soul with love divine.
3. Send me, Lord, where Thou wilt send me. Only do Thou guide my way; May Thy grace through life attend me, Gladly then shall I obey.
4. Let me do Thy will or bear it; I would know no will but Thine; Shouldst Thou take my life or spare it, I that life to Thee resign.
5. Thine I am, O Lord, forever, To Thy service set apart; Suffer me to leave Thee never; Seal Thine image on my heart.
