Living for Jesus

D               A           G              D      A              D                      E7         A 
Living for Jesus a life that is true, striving to please Him in all that I do.
D               A                       G                   F#   G               D                A                  D
Yielding allegiance, glad hearted and free, this is the pathway of blessing for me.

D                                             Em                  
O Jesus, Lord and Savior, I give myself to Thee, 
        A                    D                         E7                      A
For Thou, in Thy atonement, didst give Thyself for me.
   D                                       D7                          G
I own no other Master, my heart shall be Thy throne.
                                  D          B7       E7            A         D
My life I give, henceforth to live, O Christ for Thee alone.

D               A                G                D        A                 D               E7                A
Living for Jesus who died in my place, bearing on Calv'ry my sin and discrace.
D                       A                   G                 F#   G               D                  A                   D
Such love constrains me to answer His call, follow His leading and give Him my all.

D               A                G        D     A                 D        E7          A
Living for Jesus wherever I am, doing each duty in His holy name.
D               A           G                F#     G                      D       A                D
Willing to suffer affliction and loss, deeming each trial a part of my cross.

D               A                      G                 D       A                  D                   E7               A
Living for Jesus through earth's little while, my dearest treasure, the light of His smile.
D                   A                    G              F#       G                D            A                D
Seeking the lost ones He died to redeem, brining the weary to find rest in Him.
