My heart longs for absolute surrender

1
My heart longs for absolute surrender
That I’d wholly consecrated be,
Not in word alone but all my being
Would be fully given unto Thee.
2
There is little willingness within me
To place all I am before Thy feet,
So I lay my hands on Thy dear head, Lord
As the burnt off’ring, perfect, complete.
3
Lord, You are the only One who offered
Yourself without reluctance unto God;
Full obedience to the Father given,
Absolute, You sacrificed Your all.
4
As this One, You’re dwelling in my spirit;
Moving, spreading outward day by day.
There’s a whisper of Amen within me
In response to all that You would say.
5
I say Yes and give You full permission
To touch every corner of my heart;
Break through all the barriers in my being;
Do not let me withhold any part.
6
’Tis my joy to give You all the ground, Lord;
Make my heart a dwelling place for You;
I want You to be at home within me;
Come and settle down in every room.
7
Lord, do cleanse my heart from all self-seeking
That I’d truly want nothing but Thee;
Let my soul be occupied, possessed, Lord,
That You would be magnified in me.

Wow what a sweet hymn, every stanza, every line is speaking to me. Lord I confess there is little willingness within me, but still I say “yes!” And give You full permission to touch every corner of my heart. Lord cleanse my heart from all self seeking, so I would truly want nothing but You!

I was really touched by this hymn, this is so true in our experience.

Lord Jesus, by myself I cannot please You. Lord Jesus, feel free to make home in my heart, occupy and posses my whole being until You'll be magnified in me.

I love the progression in this hymn. "Little willingness" becomes "I say yes and give You full permission" and "'Tis my joy to give You all the ground."

WOW! Saints, I'm deeply moved by this hymn!

Thank You, Lord, for being the One who can capture my heart and my being in such a way! Lord, You are so lovely! I love You, my Beloved!

This song helps me to be released from my self and to enter into the Holy of Holies. I experienced the sweetness and satisfaction within. "Lord I want to give You full permission to touch every corner of my heart. Make my heart a dwelling place for You. I want You to be at home within me."

Lord we agree with every word of this song. We'd like to be wholly consecrated to you but are not willing to lay all on the altar. But Lord we have You as the absolute One in our being who can break through all the barriers until every corner of our heart is fully Your home. Lord Jesus do it for Your satisfaction and rest. AMEN.
