I surrender all - Brian Littrell

  1. 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.
  2. All to Jesus I surrender;
    Humbly at His feet I bow,
    Worldly pleasures all forsaken;
    Take me, Jesus, take me now.
  3. All to Jesus I surrender;
    Make me, Savior, wholly Thine;
    Let me feel the Holy Spirit,
    Truly know that Thou art mine.
  4. All to Jesus I surrender;
    Lord, I give myself to Thee;
    Fill me with Thy love and power;
    Let Thy blessing fall on me.
  5. All to Jesus I surrender;
    Now I feel the sacred flame.
    Oh, the joy of full salvation!
    Glory, glory, to His Name!

- Words by Judson W. Van DeVenter, 1896

Van DeVenter wrote this song in East Palestine, Ohio, in the home of George Sebring (later the developer of the town of Sebring, Florida). At the time, Judson was undecided about whether to continue his career in art or going into full-time evangelistic work. After writing this song, he decided to become an evangelist and was notably successful in that field.

While Weeden published a number of books of religious music, this may have been his favorite, it's title was on his tombstone.
