I clasp the hand of Love divine

I clasp the hand of Love divine,
I claim the gracious promise mine,
and add to His my countersign,
I take, He undertakes.

I take Thee, blessed Lord,
I give myself to Thee,
and Thou, according to Thy word,
dost undertake for me.

I take salvation full and free,
through Him who gave His life for me,
He undertakes my All to be,
I take, He undertakes.


I take Him as my holiness,
my spirit's spotless heavenly dress,
I take the Lord my Righteousness,
I take, He undertakes.


I take the promised Holy Ghost,
I take the power of Pentecost,
to fill me to the uttermost,
I take, He undertakes.


I take Him for this mortal frame,
I take my healing through His name,
and all His risen life I claim,
I take, He undertakes.


I simply take Him at His word,
I praise Him that my prayer is heard,
and claim my answer from the Lord,
I take, He undertakes.
