~Living For Jesus!~

I just recently learned this beautiful hymn! What great words!
"Living for Jesus"...OH! What A BLESSED LIFE! ~Heather~


 (Click on title to hear a sweet African choir sing this.
Song starts about 15 seconds into video.)

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, hence forth to live, 
O Christ, for Thee alone!

Living for Jesus who die 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.

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.

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.

(emphasis mine! :-)

Yes, we have known this song for years. I cannot remember, nor Daddy either where or when we first heard it, I am surprised that you had not heard it. But it is good. Love, Moma

I'm glad you found and learned this good old hymn. It seems these old hymns have the rich meat of theology that feeds our souls and say the words to Jesus that we really don't know how to say on our own. Good words in songs keep my soul fed, so much of the time. Love, Mom D
