Representative Text

1 All for Jesus! all for Jesus!
This our song shall ever be:
you our only hope, our Savior,
yours the love that sets us free!

2 All for Jesus: you will give us
strength to serve you hour by hour;
none can move us from your presence
while we trust your grace and power.

3 All for Jesus--you have loved us,
all for Jesus--you have died,
all for Jesus--you are with us,
all for Jesus crucified.

4 All for Jesus, all for Jesus,
all our talents and our powers,
all our thoughts and words and actions,
all our passing days and hours.

5 All for Jesus, all for Jesus!
This the Church's song shall be
till at last her children gather,
one in him eternally.
