A pledge of service to the Lord
Sat idle many years.
ĎTill God knocked on his heart once more
He wept such bitter tears.
ďIíll serve,Ē said he, just lead the way,
ďMy heart belongs to you;
The gifts youíve givín, Iíll freely share.
Your will, I want to do.Ē
Preach my word, in song and text.
Iíll teach you day by day.
Trust in me, Iíll be your guide,
Iíll teach you what to say.
And so it is, this young man sings
His praises to the Lord.
He testifies of Godís great love,
And preaches evermore.
