1. Living for Jesus a life that is true, Striving to please Him in all that I do; Yielding allegiance, gladhearted and free, This is the pathway of blessing for me.
Refrain: O Jesus, Lord and Savior, I give myself to Thee; For Thou, in Thy atonement, Didst give Thyself for me; I own no other Master, My heart shall be Thy throne; My life I give, henceforth to live, O Christ, for Thee alone.
2. Living for Jesus Who died in my place, Bearing on Calv’ry my sin and disgrace; Such love constrains me to answer His call, Follow His leading and give Him my all.
3. Living for Jesus wherever I am, Doing each duty in His holy name; Willing to suffer affliction and loss, Taking each trial as part of my cross.
4. Living for Jesus thru earth’s little while, My dearest treasure, the light of His smile; Seeking the lost ones He died to redeem, Bringing the weary to find rest in Him.
