Take it all to Jesus

Full Text

1 Take it all to Jesus, all thy heart's deep woe,
He will wash and make thee whiter than the snow;
Take it all to Jesus, all thy weight of sin;
Let his blood so precious be applied within.

Refrain:
Take it all, take it all,
All thy weight of sin;
Let his blood so precious be applied within.

2 Take it all to Jesus, doubts and fears and shame;
Carry all to Jesus, and his promise claim;
Take it all to Jesus, every vain desire,
Let him by his Spirit purest thoughts inspire.

Refrain:
Take it all, take it all,
Every vain desire,
Let him by his Spirit purest thoughts inspire.

3 Take it all to Jesus, who sweet peace bestows;
Take it all to Jesus, every need he knows;
Take it all to Jesus, take thyself, thy will,
And the vessel emptied shall the Master fill.

Refrain:
Take it all, take it all,
Take thyself, thy will,
And the vessel emptied shall the Master fill.
