1 I have heard Thy voice, Lord Jesus,
Saying in Thy grace divine;
“Fear thou not, I have redeemed thee,
I have called thee, thou art mine.”
Lord I bring Thee full allegiance,
Lord I yield Thee ev’rything;
Answering year, Thou hast redeemed me,
I am Thine my King, my King.

Refrain:
All for Jesus, all for Jesus,
All for Him who died for me;
All for Jesus, all for Jesus,
Now and thro’ eternity.

2 I have nothing worth Thy taking,
Thou whom heav’nly hosts adore;
But my heart is longing, yearning,
To be Thine forevermore.
So I come to Thee, Lord Jesus,
Laying in surrender sweet;
All I am and have and hope for,
All I leave at Thy dear feet. [Refrain]

3 All, yes all for Thee, Lord Jesus,
Seal the purchase by Thy blood;
Thine am I, Thou Son of David,
Thine am I, Thou Son of God.
All the heart rebellion ended,
All the half allegiance past;
All Thy rightful kingship owning,
Thine, all Thine, at last at last. [Refrain]

4 All for Jesus, Master keep it,
Chiming on within my heart;
Chiming when the way is gladsome,
Chiming when the teardrops start.
Chiming when the shadows gather,
Chiming when the sunbeams throng;
Chiming till the music merges
Into heav’n’s eternal song. [Refrain]

5 For the words that now Thy children
Whisper upward falt’ringly;
Soon shall be their shout of triumph,
Echoing far from sea to sea.
We shall sing it at His coming,
When His foes are prostrate hurled;
All for Jesus, all for Jesus,
Shall go ringing thro’ the world. [Refrain]

English poetess, Edith Gilling Cherry was stricken with polio in infancy, and for the rest of her brief life she walked with the aid of crutches. (Miss Cherry died at the age of 25.) Most of her poems were written before she was 15 years old. She was a deeply spiritual young woman, ever conscious of her spiritual failings. Edith Cherry gave the glory to God for her rich and insightful poetry. When she lay dying, after suffering a stroke, she said, “It all seems so small, all I have tried to do, so small to Him.” Her mother answered, “There are your songs, dear, they will carry on your work.” But Edith quickly replied, “Ah, but they were not mine at all, they were just given to me all ready, and all I had to do was write them do… Go to person page >
