“Living for Jesus” by Thomas O. Chisholm makes a beautiful prayer of submission. My life I give, henceforth to live, O Christ, for Thee alone. Amen.
1 Living for Jesus a life that is true,
striving to please him in all that I do,
yielding allegiance glad-hearted and free
this is the pathway of blessing for me.
O Jesus, Lord and Savior,
I give myself to you,
for you in your atonement
did give yourself for me.
I own no other master
my heart shall be your throne:
my life I give, henceforth to live,
O Christ, for you alone.
2 Living for Jesus, who died in my place,
bearing on Calvary my sin and disgrace:
such love constrains me to answer his call,
follow his leading, and give him my all. [Refrain]
3 Living for Jesus wherever I am,
doing each duty in his holy name,
seeking the lost ones he died to redeem,
bringing the weary to find rest in him. [Refrain]
