1 Surrendered to Jesus, forever and ever!
He bore my transgressions, unasked, long ago;
In patience He waited, forsaking me never;
His blood made my scarlet sins whiter than snow.

Surrendered to Jesus! A rebel no longer,
I’ll follow Him gladly wherever He goes;
My weapons were strong, but His loving was stronger,
He conquered my heart and He vanquished my foes.

2 Surrendered to Jesus each earthly ambition!
The world’s fickle glory I care not to win.
I choose with the righteous to suffer affliction,
Refusing the vanishing pleasures of sin. [Refrain]

3 Surrendered to Jesus! All power is given
To Him as exalted He sits on the throne.
Then why should I fear, since my Master in heaven,
Has promised to succor and strengthen His own? [Refrain]

4 Surrendered to Jesus, His Spirit receiving,
I hasten to serve Him ere night shadows fall—
To tell men of pardon that comes through believing
In Jesus the Christ, the Redeemer of all. [Refrain]
