Prayer of Commitment: I Give Myself to You

Here’s a prayer of commitment written by Lancelot Andrewes (1555-1626).

Prayer

I give myself to you Lord,
I give myself to you.
All that I am
All that I have been
All that I hope to be,

I give myself to you Lord.
I give myself to you,
In joy and in sorrow
In sickness and in health
In success and in failure,

I give myself to you Lord,
I give myself to you.
In darkness and in light
In trouble and in joy
In time and for eternity,

I give myself to you, Lord,
I give myself to you.

~ Lancelot Andrewes (1555-1626)
