Welcome to SCHP

One of My Favorite Hymns

“Let me see hmmmm after thinking about it for a few days. I went right back to the first one that came to mind ‘I Surrender All’. There are a few that came to mind for I feel I lived a few. Glory to God. This hymn made me come to the altar in floods of tears not only once in my life but twice as I Surrender[ed] All that was going on in my life.

Thank You, Jesus. It was beautiful!! I Surrender All”

SONG WRITER: Judson VanDeVenter

HYMN HISTORY: Van De Venter was involved in his church through counseling and personal work when his friends urged him to give up teaching and become an evangelist. For five years he wavered in his decision. He wrote: “At last the pivotal hour of my life came and I surrendered all. A new day was ushered into my life. I became an evangelist and discovered down deep in my soul a talent hitherto unknown to me. God had hidden a song in my heart, and a touching chord He caused me to sing songs I had never sung before.” Shortly after this time J. W. Van De Venter wrote the hymn, “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.

I surrender all,
I surrender all.
All to Thee, my blessed Savior,
I surrender all.

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, Savior, wholly Thine;
Let me feel the Holy Spirit,
Truly know that Thou art 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
