Lyrics

Verse 1
And can I yet delay
My little all to give?
To tear my soul from earth away
For Jesus to receive.

Verse 2
Nay, but I yield, I yield;
I can hold out no more;
I sink, by dying love compelled,
And own thee conqueror.

Verse 3
Though late, I all forsake;
My friends, my all resign;
Gracious Redeemer, take, O take,
And seal me ever thine.

Verse 4
Come, and possess me whole,
Nor hence again remove;
Settle and fix my wavering soul
With all thy weight of love.
