Lord, I make a full surrender,
All I yield to Thee;
For Thy love, so great and tender,
Asks the gift of me.
Dear Savior, receive me;
Thou, Holy One, bless me;
Here I fully surrender
All, all to Thee.
Lord, I bring my whole affection,
Claim it for Thine own;
Safely kept by Thy protection,
Fixed on Thee alone.
Lord, my will I here present Thee,
Now no longer mine;
Let no evil thing prevent me
Blending it with Thine.
Lord, my life I lay before Thee,
Hear the sacred vow!
All Thine own I now restore Thee,
Thine forever now.
Blessèd Spirit! Thou hast brought me
Thus my all to give;
For the blood of Christ has bought me,
And by faith I live.
