Full Text

1 Let Him to whom we now belong
His sovereign right assert,
And take up every thankful song,

The Christian lives to Christ alone,
To Christ alone he dies. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, Thine own at last receive,
Fulfill our hearts’ desire;
And let us to Thy glory live,
And in Thy cause expire. [Refrain]

4 Our souls and bodies we resign;
With joy we render Thee
Our all, no longer ours, but Thine,
To all eternity. [Refrain]
