     12 Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: 13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. 14 Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?(KJV)

1. My God, accept my heart this day 
And make it always Thine 
That I from Thee no more may stray, 
No more from Thee decline. 

2. Before the cross of Him who died, 
Behold, I prostrate fall; 
Let every sin be crucified 
And Christ be All in all. 

3. Anoint me with Thy Spirit’s grace 
And seal me for Thine own 
That I may see Thy glorious face 
And worship near Thy throne. 

4. May the dear blood once shed for me 
My blest atonement prove 
That I from first to last may be 
The purchase of Thy love! 

5. Let every thought and work and word 
To Thee be ever given; 
Then life shall be Thy service, Lord, 
And death the gate of heaven.
