Original text and translations
1 Saviour, while my heart is tender,
I would yield that heart to thee;
All my powers to thee surrender,
Thine and only thine to be.
2 Take me now, Lord Jesus, take me,
Let my youthful heart be thine;
Thy devoted servant make me,
Fill my soul with love divine.
3 Send me, Lord, where thou will send me,
Only do thou guide my way;
May thy grace through life attend me,
Gladly then shall I obey.
4 Let me do thy will, or bear it,
I would know no will but thine;
Shouldst thou take my life, or spare it,
I that life to thee resign.
5 May this solemn consecration
Never once forgotten be;
Let it know no alteration,
Registered, confirmed by thee.
6 Thine I am, O Lord, for ever,
To thy service set apart;
Suffer me to leave thee never,
Seal thine image on my heart.
