1 I have heard Thy voice, Lord Jesus,
Saying in Thy grace divine;
“Fear thou not, I have redeemed thee,
I have called thee, thou art mine.”
Lord I bring Thee full allegiance,
Lord I yield Thee ev’rything;
Answering year, Thou hast redeemed me,
I am Thine my King, my King.

Refrain:
All for Jesus, all for Jesus,
All for Him who died for me;
All for Jesus, all for Jesus,
Now and thro’ eternity.

2 I have nothing worth Thy taking,
Thou whom heav’nly hosts adore;
But my heart is longing, yearning,
To be Thine forevermore.
So I come to Thee, Lord Jesus,
Laying in surrender sweet;
All I am and have and hope for,
All I leave at Thy dear feet. [Refrain]

3 All, yes all for Thee, Lord Jesus,
Seal the purchase by Thy blood;
Thine am I, Thou Son of David,
Thine am I, Thou Son of God.
All the heart rebellion ended,
All the half allegiance past;
All Thy rightful kingship owning,
Thine, all Thine, at last at last. [Refrain]

4 All for Jesus, Master keep it,
Chiming on within my heart;
Chiming when the way is gladsome,
Chiming when the teardrops start.
Chiming when the shadows gather,
Chiming when the sunbeams throng;
Chiming till the music merges
Into heav’n’s eternal song. [Refrain]

5 For the words that now Thy children
Whisper upward falt’ringly;
Soon shall be their shout of triumph,
Echoing far from sea to sea.
We shall sing it at His coming,
When His foes are prostrate hurled;
All for Jesus, all for Jesus,
Shall go ringing thro’ the world. [Refrain]
