O Lord, Who Gave Thy Life For Me (Johnson)
O Lord, who gave they life for me, I come now in humility,
And here my sacrifice import; A contrite soul, a broken heart.
O may thy love in mercy shine, And bind my sorrowing heart to thine.
Upon the alter here I lay my pride, My hurt, each willful way.
My burden all of sin and care, And in its place thy yoke I’ll bear.
O may thy love my soul refine, And bind my trusting heart to thine.
My heart is full of love for thee Because I know thou first loved me.
Now by that love I’ll seek to live, And freely, like thyself, forgive.
O may thy love my life define, And find my willing heart to thine.
And as I strive to thus endure With cleaner hand and heart more pure,
In all around I see thy face And feel the bounties of thy grace.
O savior may thy love divine Now find my grateful heart to thine.
