"And shall I use these ransomed powers of mine
For things that only minister to me?
Lord, take my tongue, my hands, my heart, my all,
And let me live and love for Thee!"

"My Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine - for all the follies of sin I resign;
my gracious Redeemer, my Savior art Thou: if ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.
I love Thee because Thou hast first loved me and purchased my pardon on Calvary's tree;
I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy brow: if ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.
I'll love Thee in life, I will love Thee in death, and praise Thee as long as Thou lendest me breath;
and say when the death-dew lies cold on my brow, "If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now."
In mansions of glory and endless delight, I'll ever adore Thee in heaven so bright;
I'll sing with the glittering crown on my brow, "If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now."

"Whom having not seen, ye love;
in whom, though now ye see him not,
yet believing ye rejoice with joy unspeakable
and full of glory."
~ 1 Peter 1:8 ~
May you have a blessed Lord's Day, dearest friends!
