	1. My God, accept my heart this day
	And make it always Thine
	That I from Thee no more may stray,
	No more from Thee decline.

	2. Before the cross of Him who died,
	Behold, I prostrate fall;
	Let every sin be crucified
	And Christ be All in all.

	3. Anoint me with Thy Spirit's grace
	And seal me for Thine own
	That I may see Thy glorious face
	And worship near Thy throne.

	4. May the dear blood once shed for me
	My blest atonement prove
	That I from first to last may be
	The purchase of Thy love!

	5. Let every thought and work and word
	To Thee be ever given;
	Then life shall be Thy service, Lord,
	And death the gate of heaven.
