An old hymn, slightly revised to update language, that can be sung to the original tune. Original words by Mary D. James, 1880s.

All for Jesus

All for Jesus! I would give Him, all my life's desires and powers;
All my thoughts and words and doings, all my days and all my hours.
Let my hands do what would please Him; let my feet run in His ways;
Let my eyes see Jesus only; let my lips speak forth His praise.

Others prize their gems of beauty; cling to shiny toys of dust;
Boast of wealth, and fame, and pleasure; only Jesus will I trust.

Since my eyes were fixed on Jesus, I've lost sight of all beside,
So enthralled my spirit's vision, looking at the crucified. 

Oh, what wonder! How amazing! Jesus glorious King of kings,
Chose to call me His beloved, lets me rest beneath His wings.
