Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Nothing held back from Thee, Jesus, my King!
All to Thine altar, so gladly I bring!
All for Thy service, yes, all to be Thine!
All for Thy glory, O Savior Divine.

Nothing held back!
Nothing held back!
All on Thy altar I lay;
All for Thy blessed service—
Savior I bring today.

2 Nothing held back from Thee! Jesus, I pray,
Take me and make me Thine wholly today;
Take Thou my service, tho’ poor it may be,
Savior, dear Savior, I bring it to Thee. [Refrain]

3 Nothing held back from Thee, Jesus, no sin—
All I surrender; O Master come in;
Let Thy sweet presence now dwell in my soul,
Jesus my Savior take perfect control. [Refrain]

4 Nothing held back! on Thee, Jesus, I call;
Thou blessed Savior, so worthy of all;
Loving and dying on Calvary’s tree,
Giving Thy precious last blood drop for me. [Refrain]

William C. Poole was born and raised on a farm in Maryland. His parents belonged to the Methodist church. He graduated from Washington College and became a Methodist minister in Wilmington, Delaware area. He was pastor of McCabe Memorial, Richardson Park and other churches. In 1913 he was superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League of Delaware. He wrote about five hundred hymns. The writing was done as recreation and a diversion from his pastoral work. His goal in writing as well as in being a minister was to help people.
