Notes

Scripture References:
st. 3 = 1 Cor. 2:9-10

“Lord of Creation” begins by voicing praise to God for his mighty deeds (st. 1), and in keeping with the “summary of the law” (Mark 12:28-31; see also 155), it directs each one of us to sing, “I give you my will” (st. 2), “my mind” (st. 3), “my heart” (st. 4), and “my all” (st. 5). Note also the use of paradox in stanza 2.

John (Jack) Copley Winslow (b. Hanworth, Middlesex, England, 1882; d. Godalming, Surrey, England, 1974) wrote this hymn of dedication and first published it in his Garland of Verse (1961). Alterations to the text have been made in various hymnals, including the Psalter Hymnal.
