848ConsecrationJohn E. West (1863-1929)

1Thine Lord are we; the consecration sign
Is sealèd on our brow,
And hearts and voices, fired by love divine,
Are lifted to Thee now.
2Our souls are strong, by grace divinely fed,
Not given with sparing hand;
Through storm and sunshine may we still be led
Unto the promised land.
3Within our hands is grasped the Spirit’s sword,
Two-edged and keenly bright,
Wherewith to wage the warfare of the Lord
In His sure-promised might.
4In vision high there gleams the victor’s crown,
When this world’s strife is o’er
Before His throne to be in praise cast down
Who liveth evermore.
5Thine, Lord, are we, whatever life may bring,
Though good or ill Thou send,
We still are servants of the heavenly King,
As on towards rest we wend. Amen.
1 Samuel22:13And Saul said unto him, Why have ye conspired against me, thou and the son of Jesse, in that thou hast given him bread, and a sword, and hast inquired of God for him, that he should rise against me, to lie in wait, as at this day?
