135. Is Your All on the Altar

1 You have longed for sweet peace
and for faith to increase,
And have earnestly, fervently prayed;
But you cannot have rest or be perfectly blest
Until all on the altar is laid.

Refrain:
Is your all on the altar of sacrifice laid?
Your heart does the Spirit control?
You can only be blest and have peace and sweet rest
As you yield Him your body and soul.

2 Would you walk with the Lord
in the light of His word,
And have peace and contentment alway?
You must do His sweet will to be free from all ill,
On the altar your all you must lay. [Refrain]

3 O we never can know
what the Lord will bestow
Of the blessings for which we have prayed
Till our body and soul He doth fully control,
And our all on the altar is laid. [Refrain]

4 Who can tell all the love
He will send from above,
And how happy our hearts will be made;
Of the charity sweet we shall share at His feet
When our all on the altar is laid. [Refrain]
