I am not my own.

I belong to the Son of God.

He chose me in everlasting love.

He made me for himself.

He bought me with his own precious blood.

He saved me by his almighty grace.

He subdued my heart by his mercy
and causes me to surrender myself
voluntarily to his dominion.

I have nothing of my own.

I am his.

All that he has put into my hands; my time,
my talents, my property, even my family,
he has put into my hands to use for him,
his kingdom, his people, his glory.
