1 Baptized into the name
Of my redeeming Lord;
Inspired with loftiest, holiest aim
That grace can man afford;

2 To Thee, my God, I raise
A spirit glad and free,
And dedicate once more my days
With firm resolve to Thee.

3 I bless the love divine
That hath Thy servant found;
And would forevermore be Thine,
And light diffuse around.

4 In word, in thought, in deed,
I yield me to Thy will;
O God, my purpose kindly heed,
And help me to fulfill.
