To Live for God

Stir us up to offer thee, O Lord,
our bodies, our souls, our spirits,
in all we love and all we learn,
in all we plan and all we do,
to offer our labours, our pleasures, our sorrows to thee;
to work through them for thy kingdom,
to live as those who are not our own,
but bought with thy blood,
fed with thy body;
thine from our birth-hour,
thine now,
and thine forever and ever. Amen.

Charles Kingsley (1819-1875)
