Representative Text

1 Yielding my all to the service of Jesus,
Gladly to follow where’er He may lead,
Never to falter tho’ rough be the pathway,
Walking beside Him no danger I heed.

Refrain:
Yielding to Jesus,
Nothing withholding,
All to His altar
Gladly I bring,
No more rejecting
Jesus the Saviour,
Now I accept Him,
Crowing Him King.

2 Yielding my all to the service of Jesus,
Talent and time with my treasures I give,
Naught I withhold which to Him may be precious,
Only for Him would I evermore live. [Refrain]

3 Yielding my all to the service of Jesus,
Losses for Him shall be counted as gain,
Bearing each cross He permits me to suffer,
With Him in glory forever I’ll reign. [Refrain]
