1 All to Thee, my blessed Saviour,
I will consecrate today;
Gladly on Thy holy altar
Ev’ry thing I have I lay.

Refrain:
All to Thee I bring,
Thou my Lord and King;
Take me, use me for Thy glory,
All to Thee I bring.

2 Time and talents, friends and loved ones,
Gold and silver, earthly store;
And my body soul and spirit
Shall be Thine forevermore. [Refrain]

3 Where Thy gentle voice may guide me,
Gladly I will follow Thee;
Be my station great or lowly,
I shall there contented be. [Refrain]

4 All to Thee my blessed Saviour,
But my off’ring seemeth small;
When with tear dim’d eyes I ponder
O’er Thy sacrifice of all. [Refrain]
