Lift my heart to thee my saviour

MHB 452
1.WHAT shall I do my God to LOve,
My Saviour, and the world's,to praise?
Whose tenderest compassions move
To me and all the fallen race,
Whose mercy Is divinely free
For all the fallen race and—me.

2.1 long to know, and to make known,
The heights and depths of love divine,
The  kindness  Thou to  me  hast shown,
Whose  every  sin  was  counted Thine :
My    God   for   me   resigned   His breath;
He   died   to   save   my   soul   from death.

3. How shall I thank Thee for the grace
On  me   and   all  mankind  bestowed?
O   that   my   every   breath   were praise!
O that my heart were filled with God
My  heart  would then, with  love
o'ernow, And all my life Thy glory show.

MHB 451
I. LIFT my heart to Thee, Saviour divine;
For Thou art all to me, And I am Thine.
Is there on  earth a closer  bond than this :
That my Beloved's mine, and I am His?

2.Thine am I by all ties; But chiefly Thine,
That through Thy sacrifice Thou, Lord, art mine.
By  Thine  own  cords of  love, so sweetly wound Around me,
I to Thee am closely bound.

3.To Thee, Thou dying Lamb,I all things owe;
All that I have, and am, And all I know.
All that I have is now no longer mine,
And I am not my own; Lord, I am Thine.

4.How can I, Lord, withhold Life's brightest hour
From Thee; or gathered gold, Or any power?
Why should I keep one precious thing from Thee,
When Thou hast given Thine own dear self for me?

5.I pray Thee, Saviour, keep Me In Thy love,
Until death's holy sleep Shall me remove
To that fair realm where, sin and sorrow o'er,
Thou und Thine own are one for evermore.  
Amen.
