Let Him to whom we now belong
His sovereign right assert,
And take up every thankful song,
And every loving heart.
He justly claims us for His own,
Who bought us with a price:
The Christian lives to Christ alone,
To Christ alone he dies.
Jesus, Thine own at last receive,
Fulfill our hearts’ desire;
And let us to Thy glory live,
And in Thy cause expire!
Our souls and bodies we resign;Charles Wesley
With joy we render Thee
Our all, no longer ours, but Thine
To all eternity.
Copied from my grandmother’s hymnal, Hymn Book, Methodist Episcopal Church, South: Nashville, TN, 1901, Hymn #407.
Note: The hymns in this hymnal are not titled. So when I do not know the hymn, I make up a title or simply use the first line.
