I Give to Thee My All
by Faith Noles 3/01/2014 / Poetry
Like a trembling sparrow in your strong, strong hand, I worship Thee in awesome fear.
Yet like the dew that kisses the rose, I feel Your tender love so near.
My great and mighty Master, Jehovah King of Kings,
You are my sunrise and my sunset as sweet love to me You bring.
I kneel before Your throne in awe that You would be mindful of me,
I know that it's not my pitiful form, but the cloak of Christ you see.
Still I wonder how great a love is this that You sent Your precious Son,
To pay for all the hideous sins that I have ever done.
How could I turn away from Thee, from Your love that runs so deep?
As I kneel before Thy throne, I bow my head and weep,
Mixed tears course down my cheek--tears of joy and pain---
Pain for past sins, yet joy for all my gain;
Joy that my sin is all behind--freedom purchased at the highest cost,
Joy that I am an heir of God, no longer am I lost.
What have I to give to Thee as I tremble in Your hand?
For I am just a heap of clay, only mortal man;
Trembling heart be still, for in His hand you'll never fall.
I have nothing worthy to give to Thee, yet I give to Thee my all.
