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.

[Matthew Bridges, 1848]

... and I will accept you, saith the Lord GOD. Ezekiel 43:27 ❤
