I am still reading in this hymnal from my teenage years and this is a favorite.
You will never hear me sing it, this 86-year-old-voice sounds more like a
frog is loose!!!

                    LIVING  FOR  JESUS

Living for Jesus a life that is true,
Striving to please Him in all that I do.
Yielding allegiance, gladhearted and free,
This is the pathway of blessings for me.

O Jesus, Lord and Saviour, 
I give myself to Thee, 
For Thou, in Thy atonement, 
Didst give Thyself for me.
I own no other Master 
My heart shall be Thy throne,
My life, I give, henceforth to live,
O Christ, for Thee alone.

verse 2
Living for Jesus who died in my place,
Bearing on Calvry my sin and disgrace.
Such love constrains me to answer His call
Follow His leading and give Him my all.

verse 3
Living for Jesus, wherever I am,
Doing each duty in His Holy Name.
Willing to suffer affliction or loss,
Deeming each trial a part of my cross.

verse 4
Living for Jesus through Earth's little while,
My dearest treasure, the light of His smile.
Seeking the lost ones He died to redeem,
Bringing the weary to find rest in Him.

 I played and sang this as a teenager, may I never forget it!
