455a. My God, accept my heart this day

1 My God, accept my heart this day,
and make it wholly thine,
that I from thee no more may stray,
no more from thee decline.

2 Before the cross of him who died,
behold, I prostrate fall;
let ev'ry sin be crucified,
and Christ be all in all.

3 Anoint me with thy heav'nly grace,
and seal me for thine own,
that I may see thy glorious face,
and worship at thy throne.

4 Let ev'ry thought and work and word
to thee be ever giv'n,
then life shall be thy service, Lord,
and death the gate of heav'n.

5 All glory to the Father be,
all glory to the Son,
all glory, Holy Ghost, to thee,
while endless ages run.
