My God Accept My Heart This Day

Christian funeral hymn with a message about offering oneself up to God and finding salvation after death.

My God Accept My Heart This Day

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,
Let Christ be all in all. 

Anoint me with Thy heavenly grace,
Adopt me for Thine own,
That I may see Thy glorious face,
And worship at Thy throne. 

May the dear blood once shed for me
My blest atonement prove
That I from first to last may be
The purchase of Thy love!

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.
