Only One Life
Only one life to offer Ė Jesus, my Lord and King;
Only on tongue to praise Thee And of Thy mercy sing (forever);
Only one heartís devotion Ė Savior, O may it be
Consecrated alone to Thy matchless glory,
Yielded fully to Thee.
Only this hour is mine, Lord - May it be used for Thee;
May evíry passing moment Count for eternity (my Saviour);
Souls all about are dying, Dying in sin and shame;
Help me bring them the message of Calvíryís redemption
In Thy glorious name.
Only one life to offer - Take it, dear Lord, I pray;
Nothing from Thee withholding, Thy will I now obey (my Jesus);
Thou who hast freely given Thine all in all for me,
Claim this life for Thine own, to be used, my Saviour,
Evíry moment for Thee.
