“Only for Thee”
words by Eliza Ann Walker set to F.R.H.’s hymn score “Onesimus”

1. Precious Savior, may I live
Only for Thee
Spend the powers Thou dost give
Only for Thee!
Be my spirit’s deep desire
Only for Thee!
May my intellect aspire
Only for Thee!

2. In my joys may I rejoice
Only for Thee!
In my choices make my choice
Only for Thee!
Meekly may I suffer grief
Only for Thee!
Gratefully accept relief
Only for Thee!

3. Be my smiles and be my tears
Only for Thee!
Be my young and riper years
Only for Thee!
Be my peace and be my strife
Only for Thee!
Be my love and be my life
Only for Thee!

4. Be my singing and my sighing
Only for Thee!
Be my sickness and my dying
Only for Thee!
Be my rising, be my glory
Only for Thee!
Be my whole eternity
Only for Thee!

Onesimus
