I Surrender All


SONG WRITER: Judson VanDeVenter                        

MUSIC BY: Winfield Weeden

HYMN HISTORYVan De Venter was involved in his church through counseling and personal work when his friends urged him to give up teaching and become an evangelist.  For five years he wavered in his decision.  He wrote: "At last the pivotal hour of my life came and I surrendered all.  A new day was ushered into my life.  I became an evangelist and discovered down deep in my soul a talent hitherto unknown to me.  God had hidden a song in my heart, and a touching chord He caused me to sing songs I had never sung before."  Shortly after this time J. W. Van De Venter wrote the hymn, "I Surrender All."

BIBLE VERSE:   1 Corinthians 13:3 “If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.”  NIV

HYMN LYRICS:

All to Jesus I surrender,
All to Him I freely give;
I will ever love and trust Him,
In His presence daily live.

Refrain:
I surrender all,
I surrender all.
All to Thee, my blessed 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.

Refrain

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

Refrain

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

Refrain
