I'll Live My Life For You
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by
the mercies of God, that ye present
your bodies a living sacrifice, holy,
acceptable unto God, which is your
reasonable service. Romans 12:1
Oh, Lord, You've given so much more,
Than I could ever give,
So I'll always try to honor You
In the way I choose to live.
I'll read Your precious Word, God,
Every morning, noon, and night;
To gird me for life's battles,
And arm me with Your might.
I'll try to show to others, Lord,
The love You've shown to me,
And how You gave Your life for us,
On a cross at Calvary.
I'll do my best to live a life
Of service and self-sacrifice;
To keep your words, and statutes
I'm willing to pay that price.
I'll try to show the world that You
Can heal their sin and shame;
For what You've done for me, Lord,
I'll always praise Your name!
You gave Your very life for me,
So the least that I can do
Is to glorify You, every day,
And live my life for You.
