19. Give Me Thine Heart!

1 Wherever we may go, by night or day,
A loving voice within doth gently say:
My son, from ev’ry way of sin depart;
Be Satan's slave nor more, "Give Me thy heart!"

“Give Me thy heart,
Give Me thy heart;
O weary, wand'ring child,
Give Me thy heart.”

2 Slight not that voice so kind, but gladly hear,
And choose the Lord today, while He is near;
He will His pard'ning love to thee impart;
Oh, hear Him calling still, "Give Me thy heart!" [Refrain]

3 We may have chosen long from Him to roam,
Yet He will welcome us, if we but come;
Oh, may we not delay, but quickly start—
While Jesus sayeth still, "Give Me thy heart!" [Refrain]
