Hymn 304 - Father, Let Me Dedicate

Instrumental Accompaniments

Vocal Accompaniments


Father, let me dedicate All this year to Thee,

In whatever wordly state Thou wilt have me be;

Not from sorrow, pain, or care, Freedom dare I claim;

This alone shall be my prayer, “Glorify Thy Name.”

Can a child presume to choose Where or how to live?

Can a Father's love refuse All the best to give?

More Thou givest ev'ry day Than the best can claim;

Nor withholdest aught that may Glorify Thy Name.

If Thou callest to the cross, And its shadow come,

Turning all my gain to loss, Shrouding heart and home;

Let me think how Thy dear Son To His glory came,

And in deepest woe pray on, “Glorify Thy Name.”

If in mercy Thou wilt spare Joys that yet are mine,

If on life, serene and fair, Brighter rays may shine;

Let my glad heart, while it sings, Thee in all proclaim;

And whate’er the future brings, Glorify Thy Name.
