Father, let me Dedicate
Father, let me dedicate, all this year to Thee,
In whatever worldly state Thou wilt have me be:
Not from sorrow, pain or care, freedom dare I
This alone shall be my prayer, glorify Thy Name.
Can a child presume to choose where or how to live?
Can a Father’s love refuse all the best to
More Thou givest every day than the best can claim
Nor withholdest aught that may glorify Thy Name.
If in mercy Thou wilt spare joys that yet are
If on life, serene and fair, brighter rays may shine;
Let my glad heart, while it sings, Thee in all proclaim,
And, whate’er the future brings, glorify Thy Name.
If Thou callest to the cross, and its shadow come,
Turning all my gain to loss, shrouding heart and home;
Let me think how Thy dear Son to His glory came,
And in deepest woe pray
on, “Glorify Thy Name.”
Some hymnals alter the last verse to:
If we must in grief and loss Thy behest obey,
If beneath the
shadowy cross liest our homeward way;
We will think what Thy dear Son once for us became,
And repeat till life is done, glorify Thy Name.
