  My King and Master  


            Christ my King, my Master, let my whole life be,
Spent in blessed service only until Thee
        Let me serve Thee gladly, That the world may know
    'Tis a happy privilege, Thee to serve below.

Let me serve Thee humbly,
                Thine be all the praise,
    'Tis Thy love alone which tunes my feeble lays;
Let me serve Thee quickly--Time will soon be o'er
    I would fain lead many to heaven's peaceful shore.

Let me serve Thee ever, from morning until eve,
    My earliest and my latest breath, my King, Thou shall receive.
And oh when service here is spent, and Heaven is won
        Grant that I too, dear Master, may hear Thy sweet "Well done!"

       - Frances Ridley Havergal
