Edith G. Cherry (1872–1897)


I have heard Thy voice, Lord Je­sus,
Saying in Thy grace di­vine:
Fear thou not, I have re­deemed thee;
I have called thee, thou art Mine.

Lord, I bring Thee full al­le­giance!
Therefore now to Thee I sing,
Answering, Yea, Thou hast re­deemed me;
I am Thine, my Lord, my king!

I have no­thing worth Thy tak­ing,
Thou, whom heav’n­ly hosts adore,
But my heart is long­ing, yearn­ing,
To be Thine for­ev­er­more.
So I come to Thee, Lord Je­sus,
Laying in sur­ren­der meet
All I am, and have, and hope for,
All I love, at Thy dear feet.

Yet the of­fer­ings here are hum­ble,
Which Thy child­ren bring to Thee,
And their best and sweet­est prais­es
Are but ren­dered fal­ter­ing­ly.
But our song shall be tri­um­phant,
When Thy glo­ry we shall see:
All for Je­sus! All for Je­sus!
Now and through eter­ni­ty.
