1 All I am belongs to Jesus;
Time and talents, and of store,
He has given me full measure,
Heaping up and running o’er.

Refrain:
All for Him, all for Him,
All for Him, all for Him;
All I have belongs to Jesus,
With myself forevermore.

2 All I am belongs to Jesus;
Body, spirit, mind and soul,
Ransomed by His blood so precious,
He has right to full control. [Refrain]

3 All my work belongs to Jesus;
All my deeds and song and praise,
Gladly will I render Jesus
All my service, all my days. [Refrain]
