Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Fully persuaded, Lord, I believe

Full Text

1. Fully persuaded, Lord, I believe!
Fully persuaded, Thy Spirit give;
I will obey Thy call; low at Thy feet I fall;
Now I surrender all, Christ to receive.

2. Fully persuaded—Lord, hear my cry!
Fully persuaded—pass me not by;
Just as I am I come, I will no longer roam,
O make my heart Thy home; save, or I die!

3. Fully persuaded, no more opprest,
Fully persuaded, now I am blest;
Jesus is now my Guide, I will in Christ abide,
My soul is satisfied in Him to rest!

4. Fully persuaded, Jesus is mine;
Fully persuaded, Lord I am Thine!
O make my love to Thee like Thine own love to me,
So rich, so full and free, Savior divine!
