"Lord, I Give Up My Own Plans and Purposes..."

Updated: Jul 11, 2021

"Lord, I give up my own plans and purposes,

all my own desires, hopes and ambitions,

and I accept Thy will for my life.

I give up myself, my life,

my all, utterly to Thee,

to be Thine forever.

I hand over to Thy keeping all of my friendships;

all the people whom I love are to take

second place in my heart.

Fill me now and seal me with Thy Spirit.

Work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost,

for to me to live is Christ. Amen."

-Betty Scott Stam
