I Bring My Heart to Jesus

Proverbs 23:26

I bring my heart to Jesus, with its fears,

With its hopes and feelings, and its tears;

Him it seeks, and finding, it is blest;

Him it loves, and loving is at rest.

Walking with my Savior, heart in heart,

None can part.

I bring my life to Jesus, with its care,

And before His footstool leave it there;

Faded are its treasures, poor and dim;

It is not worth living without Him.

More than life is Jesus, love and peace,

Ne’er to cease.

I bring my sins to Jesus, as I pray

That His blood will wash them all away;

While I seek for favor at His feet,

And with tears His promise still repeat,

He doth tell me plainly: Jesus lives

And forgives.

I bring my all to Jesus; He hath seen

How my soul desireth to be clean.

Nothing from His altar I withhold

When His cross of suffering I behold;

And the fire descending brings to me

Liberty.
