Representative Text

1 All, all to Jesus, I consecrate anew,
He is my portion forever;
Only His glory, henchforth [sic] will I pursue,
He is my portion forever.

Refrain:
Take, take the world with all its gilded toys,
Take, take the world I covet not its joys.
Mine is a wealth no moth nor rust destroys;
Jesus my portion forever.

2 All, all to Jesus, my trusting heart can say,
He is my portion forever;
Led by His mercy I'm walking ev'ry day,
He is my portion forever. [Refrain]

3 Though He may try me this blessed truth I know,
He is my portion forever;
He will not leave me, His promise tells me so,
He is my portion forever. [Refrain]

4 All, all to Jesus, I cheerfully resign,
He is my portion forever;
I have the witness that He, my Lord, is mine,
He is my portion forever. [Refrain]
