Jane Roscoe.

Self-Consecration.

O God, to Thee, who first hast given

To mortal frame the spark of heaven,

I consecrate my powers;

Thine is its hoped eternity,

And Thine its earthly life shall be,

Through years, and days, and hours.

Here at Thy shrine I bow, resigned

Each struggling passion of my mind,

With all its hopes and fears;

To bend each thought to Thy control

Is the one wish that fills my soul,

Through all my future years.
