From my heart comes a melody

1
From my heart comes a melody
Of the One who gave His life for me.
How can I turn away from Thee;
Lord, I have seen Thy changeless love for me.
Enjoyment so full!
Life's reality!
That's what You're to me:
Lord, You have won my heart!
Take my heart, take my whole life too;
Lord, I can't help giving myself to You.
2
From the day that I first met You.
How could I help falling in love with You?
Emptiness turned life's pleasures blue;
No earthly love ever could see me through.
'Till I turned one day
Opened up my heart,
Let Your love flow in
And fill my deepest part.
Now I know, Lord, You're one with me;
And I can't help giving myself to Thee.
Lord, I can't help giving myself to Thee.

Not sure who wrote the lyrics, but the melody is from an Elvis Presley song en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Can't_Help_Falling_in_Love. Not sure it is the best thing to use secular melody for Christian songs. The verses are priceless, but they deserve a better melody, especially if it comes from the heart as it's title.

Amen, saints. This hymn is a precious gem of an experience of consecration - giving one's own life - to the Lord. How can we do this? "Enjoyment so full! Life's reality! That's what you are to me; Lord, You have won my heart!" We did nothing - our God won our hearts and now we can't help but give ourselves to Him.

One suggestion for the sake of clarity is to change "Lord, I can't help giving myself to You" to "Lord, I can't help but give myself to You" and similarly on other lines. This will help give a clear translation and also help convey the feeling of a present desire for consecration.

Isn't this hymn sound so pretty? 'From my heart, comes a melody, From the one who gave his life for me...' Aren't those words so sweet? I gave myself to the Lord when I was a little girl. I am now so thankful I did! I'm also so thankful God sent his only son to take away our sins!
