My life, my love, I give to Thee

My life, my love, I give to Thee,
Thou Lamb of God who died for me;
Oh, may I ever faithful be,
  My Savior and my God!
  I’ll live for Him who died for me,
How happy then my life shall be!
I’ll live for Him who died for me,
    My Savior and my God!
The world and all its joys I leave;
My life, O Lord, Thou wilt receive;
Henceforth no more Thyself I’ll grieve,
  My Savior and my God!
O Thou who died on Calvary,
To save my soul and make me free,
That I may ever live for Thee
  My Savior and my God!

His life for mine; now my life for His, namely that His life in me may be known to others. His devotion to me that can only be answered by my devotion to Him...and even then it's not enough...I'm forever in His debt. All, then, is reduced, distilled into worship.

It's a very beautiful melody and the lyrics are very uplifting and encouraging.
