We Surrender All

As we met together this morning at a brother and sister’s home we were singing to the Lord and as we sang “I surrender all” I thought how the words seemed to be very individual focused and was prompted to rewrite it, the body of Christ surrendering to His headship.

I rearranged some of the words and with the body together we sang it a couple times and worked out some of wording so that it would flow better together. Some of the words do not rhyme, but apart from that think it works.

It is to the tune of “I Surrender All.” This song is dedicated to Christ and His body, which He is head.

We Surrender All
(to the tune “I Surrender All”)

All to Jesus we surrender, all to Him we freely give;
We will ever love and trust Him, in His presence daily live.

We surrender all, we surrender all;
All to Thee, our blessed Savior,
We surrender all.

All to Jesus we surrender, humbly at His feet we bow;
All the old man laid asi’de, put on Jesus, our true life.

All to Jesus we surrender, make us, Savior, Thy true rest.
U’ ni’ ty of Holy Spirit, being eager to preserve.

All to Jesus we surrender, Lord, we give ourselves to Thee;
Walking in Thy love and power, Jesus dwelling in side us.
