1.

Father, Son and Holy Ghost,

One in Three and Three in One,

As by the celestial host,

Let thy will on earth be done;

Praise by all to thee be given,

Gracious Lord of earth and heaven.

2.

Vilest of the sinful race,

Lo! I answer to thy call;

Meanest vessel of thy grace,

Grace divinely free for all;

Lo! I come to do thy will,

All thy counsel to fulfil.

3.

If so poor a worm as I

My to thy great glory live,

All my actions sanctify,

All my words and thoughts receive;

Claim me for thy service, claim

All I have, and all I am.

4.

Take my soul and body's powers;

Take my memory, mind and will;

All my goods, and all my hours;

All I know, and all I feel;

All I think, or speak, or do;

Take my heart, but make it new.

5.

Now, O my God, thine own I am;

Now I give thee back thine own;

Freedom, friends and health and fame,

Consecrate to thee alone:

Thine I live, thrice happy I!

Happier still if thine I die.

6.

Father, Son and Holy Ghost,

One in Three and Three in One,

As by the celestial host,

Let thy will on earth be done;

Praise by all to thee be given,

Glorious Lord of earth and heaven.
