An SATB English hymn written in memory of Christine Allen, a student at Wyoming Catholic College whom the Lord called to Himself at a tender young age. Suitable for general use as a congregational hymn or a choir motet.

1. Savior, while my heart is tender,
I would yield that heart to Thee,
All my powers to Thee surrender,
Thine and only Thine to be.
Take me now, Lord Jesus, take me;
Let my youthful heart be Thine;
Thy devoted servant make me;
Fill my soul with love divine.

2. Send me, Lord, where Thou wilt send me,
Only do Thou guide my way;
May Thy grace through life attend me,
Gladly then shall I obey.
Let me do Thy will or bear it;
I would know no will but Thine;
Shouldst Thou take my life or spare it,
I that life to Thee resign.

3. Thine I am, O Lord, for ever,
To Thy service set apart;
Suffer me to leave Thee never;
Seal Thine image on my heart.
Now in peace and calm assurance,
Call me, Lord, into the place
Where with all Thy saints and angels
I may see Thee face to face.

vv. 1-3a: John Burton, Jr. (1850)
v. 3b: M. Morgan and P. Kwasniewski
