Living for Jesus
Words by Thomas O. Chisholm
Music by C. Harold Lowden

Romans 12:1-2

          1. I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies
            a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
          2. And be not conformed to this world:  but be ye transformed by the renewing of your
            mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

          Living for Jesus a life that is true,
          Striving to please Him in all that I do;
          Yielding allegiance, glad hearted and free,
          This is the pathway of blessing for me.

            Chorus
            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.

          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.

            Chorus
            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.

          Living for Jesus wherever I am,
          Doing each duty in His holy name;
          Willing to suffer affliction and loss,
          Deeming each trial a part of my cross.

            Chorus
            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.

          Living for Jesus through 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.

            Chorus
            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.
