VERSE 2: Only this hour is mine, Lord- May it be used for Thee; May ev'ry passing moment Count for eternity (my Savior); Souls all about are dying, Dying in sin and shame; Help me bring them the message Of Calv'ry's redemption In Thy glorious name. VERSE 3: Only one life to offer- Take it, dear Lord, I pray; Nothing from Thee withholding, Thy will I now obey (my Jesus); Thou who hast freely given Thine all in all for me, Claim this life for Thine own, to be used, My Savior, ev'ry moment for Thee. © 1937.
