1. Fully surrendered to Jesus the Lord,
Fully surrendered, I trust in His Word;
Hath He not promised that all who believe,
Perfect salvation from Him shall receive?

Fully surrendered, fully surrendered,
All on the altar and under the blood;
Fully surrendered, fully surrendered,
Pardoned and cleansed, hallelujah to God!

2. Fully surrendered, the struggle is o’er,
Now from my Savior I’ll wander no more;
Gladly the world and its pleasures forsake,
And with my Savior the narrow way take; [Refrain]

3. Fully surrendered, to go or to stay,
Just where He needs me, His will to obey;
Humbly to follow wherever He leads,
Trusting His Word to supply all my needs. [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
