What I signed up for

My dear Lord Jesus,
Thou art mine; therefore, I wish to be Thine.
All that I possess,
 my body and my soul,
my strength and my gifts,
 and all that I do,
my entire life,
shall be consecrated to Thee,
to Thee alone. 
Lay on me any burden Thou pleasest,
I shall gladly bear it. 
Lead me anywhere,
through sorrow or joy,
through good fortune or misfortune,
                   through shame or honor,
through favor of men or their disfavor,
 grant me a long life, or should I die an early death,

 --I shall be satisfied with anything. 

Lead the way, and I shall follow.

-C.F.W. Walther, Law and Gospel, pg 78
