I'm going to begin something new on my blog, starting today! Every Wednesday I'm going to publish a post, but, it will be without words. Huh? I know I'm using words now...but, next Wednesday when you check in on me you'll only see the words to a favorite hymn. That's right, no music, just the words.
I think the words of the old hymns speak volumes. Sometimes when we sing them we forget to really think about the words we're singing. If you're like me, you grew up singing most of these hymns and don't realize the power that's in the words.
So, here's the first hymn for my new Wordless Wednesday entry. Please take the time to read the words and concentrate on the power that they hold...Enjoy!
I Surrender All
All to Jesus I surrender, All to Him I freely give,
I will ever love and trust Him, In His presence daily live.
All to Jesus I surrender, Humbly at His feet I bow,
Worldly pleasures all forsaken, Take me, Jesus, take me now.
All to Jesus I surrender, Make me, Saviour, wholly Thine,
Let me feel thy Holy Spirit, Truly know that Thou are mine.
All to Jesus I surrender, Lord, I give myself to Thee,
Fill me with Thy love and power, Let Thy blessing fall on me.
I surrender all, I surrender all,
All to Thee, my blessed Saviour, I surrender all.
