All to Jesus I surrender

This is a modern adaption of the traditional evangelical hymn which was originally written in 1896 by an American evangelist, although at the time the hymn was written the writer was in the process of coming to the descission whether he should become and evangelist. The lyrics are his prayer to Jesus. I give you everything and ask that you show me and equip me for the way ahead.
This song is as relevant today in our own busy and hectic lives. May we take the time to surrender all our good times and bad times, all the times when we don't know which way to go or what decission to make, to the Lord and trust in him.

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.

chorus

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

Chorus

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

Chorus

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

Chorus
