Committment


I am no longer my own but yours.
Put me to what you will
rank me with whom you will;
put me to doing,
put me to suffering,
let me be employed for you
or laid aside for you,
exalted for you
or brought low for you;
let me be full,
let me be empty,
let me have all things,
let me have nothing.
I freely and wholeheartedly yield all things
to your pleasure and disposal.
And now, glorious and bless├Ęd God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
you are mine and I am yours.
So be it.
And the covenant now made on earth
let it be ratified in heaven. Amen

(taken from The Methodist Church Covenant service, and read by the assembly at the Archbishop of Canterbury's enthronement.)
