Living for Jesus a life that is true

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.
  O Jesus, Lord and Savior,
I give myself to Thee,
For Thou, in Thy [redemption],*
Didst give Thyself for me;
I own no other Master,
My heart shall be Thy throne,
My life I give, henceforth to live,
O Christ, for Thee alone.
Living for Jesus who died 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.
The Compilers prefer that
the New Testament word, “redemption,”
be used and sung instead of “atonement.”

This is such a precious song which I happened to come across in my Hymnal after prayer today. The song should remain as it was originally written by the song writer. If the word "atonement" was the original text, KEPT IT!

Dear Lord!

I give myself to You OVER and OVER again because I have no other master!

Grant me the grace to live for Thee and Thee alone.

The biggest tool of our enemy is discouragement. But I love the part of this song that we should serve Jesus wherever we are and view all of our sufferings as a part of our duty as Christians (a part of our cross)--but remember....this suffering is nothing compared to what Jesus went through and it is not for long that we will have to suffer.

And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul? (Matthew 16:26). So living for Jesus a life is absolutely true. (Praise the Lord always)

For Thou in Thine Atonement ( At-One-Ment: to make One again, to reconcile). I like that word: Atonement.


Tacoma, WA, United States

I never get tired of these hymns. I love using the word atonement instead because I know Jesus had to (atone) satisfy the Father before I could be redeemed or bought back. He (Thy) wasn't bought back, I was. Amen.

I heard this song sang by one of the lady who attend our Inter-Ladies fellowship in our church, from then on it became one of my favorite songs. Giving myself to the LORD in a fulfillment in my life. I am really blessed every time I listen to this song.

the simple songs of childhood suddenly come back and He said-suffer the little children and

forbid them not. .

-and you must become as a little child

not easy but simple

Praise the Lord! I'm so glad to be blended with the Southern Metro Manila churches in the Summer Truth Training held last May 3-9...

We need to live a life for Jesus. Amen.

Christ was crucified on the cross to die an all-inclusive death for His divine dispensing.

- as the Lamb of God, He took away our sin.

- as the bronze serpent, He destroyed Satan.

- as the grain of wheat, He released the divine life for the producing of many believers.

God's heart desire is to dispense Himself with all His riches into His chosen and redeemed people for His corporate expression.

In the New Testament economy of God there is the desperate need of the stewardship of God. Every member of the Body of Christ has the priviledge. We need to fulfill our stewardship, being filled with Christ and dispensing the unsearchable riches of Christ into both believers and unbelievers.

We need to answer His call, follow His leading and give Him our all.
