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]

Edith Adeline Gilling Cherry United Kingdom 1872-1897. Born at Plymouth, Devon, she was disabled from the age of 16 months by poliomyelitis and walked with crutches. The death of her only sister, who died at age 4, when Edith was age 6, devastated her. She had a gift for poetry and wrote much before the age of 15. She had friends who helped her supporting Sunday school work and the YWCA. She was a gifted illustrator of cards and porcelain which she neatly embellished with flower or fern sprays and Bible texts. Of her verse, she said, they were given to me and all I had to do was write them down. Some of her poems appeared in print in the periodical “The Christian”. She had two strokes in early life, and a 3rd, at age 25, took he… Go to person page >
