The love of God has been poured out within our hearts
through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
Romans 5:5 NASB
I am no longer my own, but Yours.
Put me to what You will, rank me with whom You will.
Let me be employed by You or laid aside for You,
exalted for You or brought low by You.
Let me have all things, let me have nothing,
I freely and heartily yield all things to Your pleasure and disposal.
And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
You are mine and I am Yours. So be it.
