Self-Consecration.
200

My soul no more shall strive in vain,

Slave to the world, and slave to sin!

A nobler toil I will sustain,

A nobler satisfaction win.

I will resolve, with all my heart,

With all my powers, to serve the Lord;

Nor from His precepts e’er depart,

Whose service is a rich reward.

O, be His service all my joy!

Around let my example shine,

Till others love the blest employ,

And join in labors so divine.

O, may I never faint nor tire,

Nor, wandering, leave His sacred ways;

Great God! accept my soul’s desire,

And give me strength to live Thy praise.
