William Jones, 1789
Matthew Bridges, 1848
My God, accept my heart this day,
And make it always thine,
That I from thee no more may stray,
No more from thee decline.
Before the cross of him who died,
Behold, I prostrate fall;
Let every sin be crucified,
And Christ be all in all.
Anoint me with thy heavenly grace
And seal me for thine own;
That I may see thy glorious face,
And worship near thy throne.
Let every thought, and work, and word,
To thee be ever given;
Then life shall be thy service, Lord,
And death the gate of heaven!
