Lyrics

All, yes all, I give to Jesus,
It belongs to Him;
All my heart I give to Jesus,
It belongs to Him;
Evermore to be His dwelling,
Evermore His praises swelling,
Evermore His goodness telling,
It belongs to Him.

All, yes all, I give to Jesus,
It belongs to Him;
All my voice I give to Jesus,
It belongs to Him;
Pleading for the young and hoary,
Telling of His power and glory,
Singing o’er and o’er the story,
It belongs to Him.

All, yes all, I give to Jesus,
It belongs to Him;
All my love I to give to Jesus,
It belongs to Him;
Loving Him for love unceasing,
For His mercy e’er increasing,
For His watchcare never ceasing,
It belongs to Him.

All, yes all, I give to Jesus,
It belongs to Him;
All my life I give to Jesus,
It belongs to Him;
Hour by hour I’ll live for Jesus,
Day by day I’ll work for Jesus,
Evermore I’ll honor Jesus,
All belongs to Him.
