YOUR PEOPLE, MASTER, I WOULD SERVE††††††† †††††††††††
(Tune: Alas! And Did My Savior Bleed† #110† CM)
Your people, Master, I would serve -
††† Choose the best place for me;
††† Give me the gifts most needed now,
††† That I might useful be.
My all I consecrate to You,
††† My God, my sovereign Lord;
††† O let me serve Your cause on earth
††† To spread Your gracious Word.
Your church on earth I take to be
††† My family in this world:
††† A faithful member, make of me,
††† To honor You, my God.
When I have served my usefulness
††† In Your kingdom below,
††† I would to Your triumphant church
††† In heavenís glory go.
There I shall serve You as I would,
††† With that great, ransomed throng,
††† To whom I hope, by grace Divine,
††† I rightfully belong.
