In Full and Glad Surrender

Representative Text

1 In full and glad surrender
I give myself to thee,
thine utterly and only,
and evermore to be.

2 O Son of God, who lov'st me,
I will be thine alone;
and all I have and am, Lord,
shall henceforth be thine own!

3 Reign over me, Lord Jesus,
O make my heart thy throne;
it shall be thine, dear Saviour,
it shall be thine alone.

4 O come and reign, Lord Jesus,
rule over ev'rything!
and keep me always loyal
and true to thee, my King.
