Fully persuaded, Lord, I believe

Full Text

1. Fully persuaded, Lord, I believe!
Fully persuaded, Thy Spirit give;
I will obey Thy call; low at Thy feet I fall;
Now I surrender all, Christ to receive.

2. Fully persuaded—Lord, hear my cry!
Fully persuaded—pass me not by;
Just as I am I come, I will no longer roam,
O make my heart Thy home; save, or I die!

3. Fully persuaded, no more opprest,
Fully persuaded, now I am blest;
Jesus is now my Guide, I will in Christ abide,
My soul is satisfied in Him to rest!

4. Fully persuaded, Jesus is mine;
Fully persuaded, Lord I am Thine!
O make my love to Thee like Thine own love to me,
So rich, so full and free, Savior divine!
