You have longed for sweet peace
And for favour to increase
U have earnestly, so fervently, oh oh you really prayed
Oh yes you have
But you cannot find rest
Nor be perfectly blessed
Until all on the alter, until it's laid

Is your all on the alter of sacrifice?
Is it laid?
Your heart does the Spirit control?
Now, you can only, you can only be blessed
And have peace and sweet rest
After you have yielded unto the Lord
Your body and your soul

Is your all on the alter of sacrifice?
Of sacrifice laid?
Your heart does the Spirit control?
Now, u can only, only, only be blessed
And have peace and sweet rest
After you have yielded Him
Yielded Him your body and your soul

That's all He wants:
Everything, everything, everything
So would you walk with the Lord
In the beauty of His light?
Would you obey His Word
Everyday and every night?
We will never know just what
The Lord has to bestow upon his children
Until we give Him complete control
Give Him your, your heart and your mind
Give Him your spirit, your soul
Give Him your thoughts, give Him your ways, your desires
Just give Him your body and your soul
