God made me for Himself To serve Him




God made me for Himself,
to serve Him here
With love’s pure service
and in filial fear;
To show His praise,
for Him to labor now;
Then see His glory
where the angels bow.


All needful grace was mine,
through His dear Son,
Whose life and death
my full salvation won;
The grace that would
have strengthened me,
and taught;
Grace that would crown me
when my work was wrought.


And I, poor sinner,
cast it all away;
Lived for the toil
or pleasure of each day;
As if no Christ
had shed His precious blood,
As if I owed no homage
to my God.


O Holy Spirit,
with Thy fire divine,
Melt into tears
this thankless heart of mine;
Teach me to love
what once I seemed to hate,
And live to God,
before it be too late.
