Lyrics

Savior, ’tis a full surrender,
All I leave to follow Thee;
Thou my leader and defender
From this hour shalt ever be.

Refrain

I surrender all!
I surrender all!
All I have I bring to Jesus,
I surrender all.

As I come in deep contrition,
At this consecrated hour,
Hear, O Christ, my heart’s petition,
Let me feel the Spirit’s power!

Refrain

No withholding—full confession;
Pleasures, riches, all must flee;
Holy Spirit, take possession!
I no more, but Thou in me.

Refrain

Be this theme my song and story,
Now and until life is o’er;
This my rapture, this my glory,
Till I reach the shining shore.

Refrain

Oh, the joy of full salvation!
Oh, the peace of love divine!
Oh, the bliss of consecration!
I am His, and He is mine.
