All for Je­sus, all for Je­sus!
All my be­ing’s ran­somed pow­ers:
All my thoughts and words and do­ings,
All my days and all my hours.


All for Je­sus! All for Je­sus!
All my days and all my hours;
All for Je­sus! All for Je­sus!
All my days and all my hours.

Let my hands per­form His bid­ding,
Let my feet run in His ways;
Let my eyes see Je­sus on­ly,
Let my lips speak forth His praise.


Worldlings prize their gems of beau­ty,
Cling to gild­ed toys of dust,
Boast of wealth and fame and plea­sure;
Only Je­sus will I trust.


Since my eyes were fixed on Je­sus,
I’ve lost sight of all be­side;
So en­chained my spi­rit’s vi­sion,
Looking at the Cru­ci­fied.


Oh, what won­der! how amaz­ing!
Jesus, glo­ri­ous King of kings,
Deigns to call me His be­lov­èd,
Lets me rest be­neath His wings.
