All To Jesus I Surrender

A wonderful Old Hymn is called: ‘I Surrender All To Jesus’.

The first verse of this hymn goes like this:

All to Jesus I surrender,

All to Him I freely give;

I will ever love and trust Him,

in His Presence daily live.

That is a sermon in itself.  The word surrender means: ‘to deliver up to the control or power of someone else’.

Really to accept Him as Our Lord,  Our Savior, Our Redeemer and Our Friend, and it is a total pleasure to surrender to Him.

Jeremiah 29 verse 11: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ this is the Lord’s declaration–Plans for your welfare,not for disaster,to give you a future and a hope.”

Surrendering to Our Lord and Our Friend Who has given us a promise like that. He knows all about us, and if we accept Him and surrender our lives to Him, He will give us a future and a hope.

The final verse of this five verse hymn is:

All to Jesus I surrender:

Now I feel the sacred flame;

Oh the joy of full salvation!

Glory, glory to His Name!

Surrendering to Our Lord and Friend, is not a binding thing, surrendering brings  the greater joy of full salvation,  where we truly let Him be Lord of our lives.

The Chorus of this wonderful Hymn is:

I surrender all, I surrender all, All to Thee my blessed Savior, I surrender all.

Surrender does not allow us to be vulnerable, but He always has us covered, and the benefits of living in Christ can never be fully comprehended.

God bless.
