Your people, Master, I would serve -

††† Choose the best place for me;

††† Give me the gifts most needed now,

††† That I might useful be.

 

 

My all I consecrate to You,

††† My God, my sovereign Lord;

††† O let me serve Your cause on earth

††† To spread Your gracious Word.

 

 

Your church on earth I take to be

††† My family in this world:

††† A faithful member, make of me,

††† To honor You, my God.

 

 

When I have served my usefulness

††† In Your kingdom below,

††† I would to Your triumphant church

††† In heavenís glory go.

 

 

There I shall serve You as I would,

††† With that great, ransomed throng,

††† To whom I hope, by grace Divine,

††† I rightfully belong.
