Thine I am, O Lord forever,
To thy service, set apart,
Suffer me to leave thee never,
Seal thy image on my heart.
Take me now, Lord Jesus, take me.
Let me be forever thine.
Thy devoted servant make me,
Fill my soul with love divine.
Let me do thy will or bear it
I would know no will but thine.
Should thou take my life or spare it
I my life to thee resign.
May this solemn dedication
never once forgotten be,
Help me, precious Savior, help me
To ever be of use to thee.
(Written by Alice Richardson, October 24, 1898)
