ARTWORK_AltarOfSacrifice_8x10L_v1_04-IsYourAllOnTheAltar-Header-569p

This Hymn, along with a moving question by a seasoned Prayer Warrior and Dearest Friend, prompted me to consider if my “All” had been turned over to my Lord and Saviour.  Carefully read these words, which as it did for me immediately, see if the words become singing praise and weeping consideration of how much He has of you.  No doubt whatsoever will be had for those who will lay it all down, knowing that as He sacrificed Himself, He is only expecting “reasonable” service from His Bride.

Is Your All on the Altar?

Written by | Elisha A. Hoffman, 1900

Based upon the following verse of Scripture:

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Romans 12:1 | King James Version

Words to Hymn:

You have longed for sweet peace,
And for faith to increase,
And have earnestly, fervently prayed;
But you cannot have rest,
Or be perfectly blest,
Until all on the altar is laid.

Refrain:
Is your all on the altar of sacrifice laid?
Your heart does the Spirit control?
You can only be blest,
And have peace and sweet rest,
As you yield Him your body and soul.

Would you walk with the Lord,
In the light of His word,
And have peace and contentment alway?
You must do His sweet will,
To be free from all ill,
On the altar your all you must lay.

Oh, we never can know
What the Lord will bestow
Of the blessings for which we have prayed,
Till our body and soul
He doth fully control,
And our all on the altar is laid.

Who can tell all the love
He will send from above,
And how happy our hearts will be made;
Of the fellowship sweet
We shall share at His feet,
When our all on the altar is laid.
