Representative Text

1 Lord, I make a full surrender,
All I have I yield to Thee,
For Thy love, so great and tender,
Asks the gift of me.
Lord, I bring my whole affection,
Claim it, take it for Thine own;
Safely kept by Thy protection,
Fixed on Thee alone.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
I have giv’n my all to God!
And I now have full salvation
Through the precious blood.

2 Lord, my will I here present Thee
Gladly, now no longer mine;
Let no evil thing prevent me
Blending it with Thine.
Lord, my life I lay before Thee,
Hear this hour the sacred vow!
All Thine own I now restore Thee,
Thine forever now. [Refrain]

3 Blessed Spirit, Thou hast brought me
Thus my will to Thee to give;
For the blood of Christ has bought me,
And by faith I live.
Show Thyself, O God of power,
My unchanging, loving Friend;
Keep me, till in death’s glad hour,
Faith in sight shall end. [Refrain]
