I surrender all

Here's a hymn that has been a huge blessing.
keep looking to Jesus. He is the best!!!

Any of you who does not give up everything he has
cannot be My disciple. Luke 14:33


All to Jesus, I surrender;
All to Him I freely give;
I will ever love and trust Him,
In His presence daily live.


I surrender all, I surrender all,
All to Thee, my bless├Ęd Savior,
I surrender all.

All to Jesus I surrender;
Humbly at His feet I bow,
Worldly pleasures all forsaken;
Take me, Jesus, take me now.


All to Jesus, I surrender;
Make me, Savior, wholly Thine;
Let me feel the Holy Spirit,
Truly know that Thou art mine.


All to Jesus, I surrender;
Lord, I give myself to Thee;
Fill me with Thy love and power;
Let Thy blessing fall on me.


All to Jesus I surrender;
Now I feel the sacred flame.
O the joy of full salvation!
Glory, glory, to His Name!


words: Judson W. Van DeVenter

Thanks for posting Judson Van DeVenter's hymn of dedication. It caught my eye because today is the 155th anniversary of his birth. Interesting man. If you'd like to know a bit more about him, I invite you to check out my daily hymn blog, Wordwise Hymns, for today.

And if you’ll excuse a brief “commercial:” If you do not have a good book on the subject of our Christmas carols, I encourage you to take a look at my own, Discovering the Songs of Christmas. In it, I discuss the history and meaning of 63 carols and Christmas hymns. The book is available through Amazon, or directly from Jebaire Publishing. (Might make a great gift too!)
