1. Leaving all to follow Jesus,
Turning from the world away,
Stepping out upon his promise,
All I have is his today.

Chorus:
Leaving all to follow Jesus,
Turning from the world away,
Stepping out upon his promise,
All I have is his today.

2. Naught reserving, on the altar
All I lay, and wait the hour
When the fire from heav'n descending
Shall attest his glorious pow'r. [Chorus]

3. Taking up the cross for Jesus,
Glad for him to suffer shame,
All my gain I count but losses
For the glory of his name. [Chorus]

4. Praise his precious name forever
That his blood hath made me free;
Now my soul shall joy to tell it
Thro' the long eternity. [Chorus]
