1 Lord, in humble consecration
I have given all to thee;
Let the work of full salvation
Graciously be wrought in me;
Let the work of full salvation
Graciously be wrought in me.

Refrain:
All for Jesus, all for Jesus,
Thine forever would I be;
All for Jesus, all for Jesus,
Have thy way and will in me.

2 Unto sinners thou art gracious,
Thou hast freely justified;
Still I trust the blood so precious
To be wholly sanctified;
Still I trust the blood so precious
To be wholly sanctified. [Refrain]

3 Take the will thy grace hast conquer’d,
Take the heart thy love hast won,
Take the life thy blood hast purchas’d,
Take me all to be thine own;
Take the life thy blood hast purchas’d,
Take me all to be thine own. [Refrain]

4 My unworthiness confessing
Humbly at thy cross I bow;
Here by faith I claim the blessing,
Take me, Savior, take me now;
Here by faith I claim the blessing,
Take me, Savior, take me now. [Refrain]

5 Thou art able now and willing,
Lord, thy promise I believe;
With the Holy Ghost thou’rt filling,
Full salvation I receive;
With the Holy Ghost thou’rt filling,
Full salvation I receive. [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
