I've Surrendered

I’ve surrendered all to Jesus, because He gave His life for me,
I’ve surrendered, yes, surrendered, because My Saviour heard my plea,
I’ve surrendered all to Jesus, because His grace has set me free,
I’ve surrendered, my life’s extended, now I await eternity.

I’ve surrendered all to Jesus, because such love for me He’s shown,
I’ve surrendered, yes, surrendered, because no love like His I’ve known,
I’ve surrendered all to Jesus, because in me this love He’s sown,
I’ve surrendered, my ‘self’ surrendered, now love for Him has grown.

I’ve surrendered all to Jesus,  because He gave me godly sight.
I’ve surrendered, yes, surrendered, because He’s led me into light,
I’ve surrendered all to Jesus, because I know His Word is right,
I’ve surrendered, my service tended, now I in His truths’ delight.

I’ve surrendered all to Jesus, because I’ve changed my point of view,
I’ve surrendered, yes, surrendered, because His way I’m wanting too,
I’ve surrendered all to Jesus, because He’s helped me right to do,
I’ve surrendered, my wrong ended, now with Him I walk anew.

I’ve surrendered all to Jesus, because He’s heard when I’ve appealed,
I’ve surrendered, yes, surrendered, because His caring He’s revealed,
I’ve surrendered all to Jesus, because my wounded heart He’s healed,
I’ve surrendered, my life’s mended, now He’s become my strength and shield.

I’ve surrendered all to Jesus, because with Him I want to be,
I’ve surrendered, yes, surrendered, because no better friend is He,
I’ve surrendered all to Jesus, because we’re so in harmony,
I’ve surrendered, with Him blended, now His face I long to see.

I’ve surrendered all to Jesus, have you thus surrendered too?
He’s everything you’re needing, this I know because it’s true,
He’s hoping you’ll embrace Him, as that He so wants you to do,
For Jesus loves you dearly, and just wants the best for you.
