O Jesus, my life and my glory, I cheerfully restore the life which I have received from Thee, and were it not Thy gift, would not be mine to return.

I have ever desired, O God of my soul, to resign my life to Thee and for Thee. The loss of my life for Thy sake, I own my advantage…

I die for love of Thee.
