Hymn/Song Information

My gracious God I own Thy right To




My gracious Lord, I own Thy right
To every service I can pay,
And call it my supreme delight
To hear Thy dictates and obey.


What is my being but for Thee,
Is sure support, its nobles end;
Thy ever-smiling face to see,
And serve the cause of such a friend?


I would not breathe for worldly joy,
Or to increase my worldly good;
Nor future days or power employ
To spread a sounding name abroad.


'Tis to my Saviour I would live,
To Him who for my ransom died;
Nor could untainted Eden give
Such bliss as blossoms at His side.


His work my hoary age shall bless,
When youthful vigour is no more;
And my last hour of life confess
His love hath animated power.

And call it my supreme delight
To hear Thy dictates and obey.


Thy work my hoary age shall bless,
When youthful vigour is no more;
And my last hour of life confess
His love hath animated power.
