Chosen not for good in me

Ps 116:12 says, "What shall I render to the Lord for all his benefits to me?"

Or as the Old Hymn of Robert Murray McCheyne (1813 - 1843) put it:

"When I stand before the throne, dressed in beauty not my own, when I see thee as tho art, love thee with unsinning heart-Then, Lord, shall I fully know, Not till then, how much I owe! Chosen not for good in me, weakened up from wrath to flee, Hidden in the Saviors side, by the Spirit sanctified,-teach me, Lord, on earth to show, by my love, how much I owe"

Or, as Paul put it, "I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship." (Rom 12:1)
