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!

This poem was taught to me about 25 years ago by an elderly women who today is 104 years old. She now only recites two hymns and this the one that she will recite the most. When I walk her down the halls she continually recites it and all the stall at the nursing now knows that hymn. She will have a special place with in heaven
