I'll Live for Him

Representative Text

1 My life, my love I give to Thee,
Thou Lamb of God who died for me;
O may I ever faithful be,
My Savior and my God!

Refrain:
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!

2 I now believe thou dost receive,
For Thou hast died That I might live;
And now henceforth I'll trust in Thee,
My Savior and my God! [Refrain]

3 O Thou who died on Calvary,
To save my soul and make me free;
I'll consecrate My life to Thee,
My Savior and my God! [Refrain]
