My spirit, soul, and body

1
My spirit, soul, and body,
Dear Lord, I give to Thee,
A consecrated offering,
Thine evermore to be.
  My all is on the altar;
Lord, I am all Thine own;
Oh, may my faith ne’er falter!
  Lord, keep me Thine alone.
2
Lord Jesus, mighty Savior,
I trust in Thy great name;
I look for Thy salvation,
Thy promise now I claim.
3
Now, Lord, I yield my members,
From sin’s dominion free,
For warfare and for triumph,
As weapons unto Thee.
4
Oh, blissful self-surrender,
To live, my Lord, by Thee;
Now, Son of God, my Savior,
Live out Thy life in me.
5
I’m Thine, O dear Lord Jesus,
Washed in Thy precious blood,
Sealed by Thy Holy Spirit,
A sacrifice to God.
  My all is on the altar;
I’m waiting for the fire;
I’m waiting, waiting, waiting;
  I’m waiting for the fire.
