1. Father, let me dedicate All this year to Thee, In whatever worldly state Thou wilt have me be: Not from sorrow, pain or care Freedom do I claim; This alone shall be my prayer, Glorify Thy Name.

2. Can a child presume to choose Where or how to live? Can a Father’s love refuse All the best to give? More Thou givest every day Than the best can claim, Nor withholdest aught that may Glorify Thy Name.

3. If in mercy Thou wilt spare Joys that yet are mine; If on life, serene and fair, Brighter rays may shine; Let my glad heart, while it sings, Thee in all proclaim, And, whate’er the future brings, Glorify Thy Name.

4. If Thou callest to the cross, And its shadow come, Turning all my gain to loss, Shrouding heart and home; Let me think how Thy dear Son To His glory came, And in deepest woe pray on, Glorify Thy Name.
