1 Lord, I am not mine, but yours alone.
Let your will be done and not my own.
Put me where you will, and let me serve;
in everything I do, let me endure.

Refrain:
This is my prayer, Lord, to you.
My promise and my vow, strong and true.
And the covenant I make on earth,
let it be fulfilled in heaven. Amen.

2 Father, Son, and Spirit hear my cry,
forever I am yours, and you are mine.
Father son, and Spirit hear my cry,
forever I am yours and you are mine. [Refrain]

Bridge:
Let me be employed for you,
laid aside for you,
lifted high for you or brought low,
Let me be full, let me empty.
Let me have all things or nothing.

3 Lord, I am not mine, but yours alone.
Let your will be done and not my own.
Put me where you will, and let me serve;
in everything I do, let me endure. [Refrain]
