Savior, While My Heart Is Tender

Full Text

1 Saviour, thee my heart I tender,
I would yield myself to thee;
All my powers to thee surrender,
Thine and only thine to be.
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.

2 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.
Thine I am, O Lord, for ever
To thy service set apart;
Suffer me to leave thee never,
Seal thy image on my heart.

Amen.
