1 I left it all with Jesus long ago,
All my sins I brought him and my woe.
When by faith I saw him on the tree,
Heard his loving whisper: ‘Tis for thee;
From my heart the burden rolled away,
2 I leave it all with Jesus, for he knows
How to steal the bitter from life’s woes,
How to gild the teardrop with his smile,
Make the desert garden bloom awhile;
When my weakness leaneth on his might
All is light!
3 I leave it all with Jesus day by day;
Faith can firmly trust him, come what may;
Hope has dropped her anchor, found her rest
In the calm, sure haven of his breast;
Love esteems it Heaven to abide
At his side.
4 O leave it all with Jesus, needy soul;
Tell not half the story, but the whole.
Worlds on worlds are hanging on his hand,
Life and death are waiting his command;
Yet his tender mercy makes thee room;
O come home!
