1 Ev’rything that life containeth,
All there is of me and mine,
Unto Thee in consecration,
Blessed Master, I resign.

Thou art more to me, my Savior,
Than this world can ever be;
So I gladly yield up to Thee
All there is of mine and me.

2 All my time and all my talents,
All my strength and all my store,
All my body, soul, and spirit,
Wholly Thine forever-more. [Refrain]

3 All my days and all my moments,
All my weeks, and months and years,
Shall be spent in Thy dear service,
Thou who driest all my tears. [Refrain]

4 In my eating and my drinking,
In my sleep and waking hours,
I shall seek to glorify Thee,
Using all my ransomed powers. [Refrain]

5 When my pilgrimage is over,
And I see Thee on Thy throne,
May I gladly yield up to Thee
All the goods which were Thine own. [Refrain]
