Tonight I went to Covenant's Build Campaign Kickoff Dinner at the Chattanoogan. It was a nice time, good to run into some old faces and good friends. When it was all over we sang the College Hymn--All for Jesus. It always moves me in such a special way. For my work in the CCO I do newsletters about every quater. I think for my next one I'll frame it around this Hymn. It's such an excellent summary and vision of the Christian walk.
All for Jesus! All for Jesus!
All my being's ransomed power;
All my thoughts and words and doings;
All my days and all my hours.
Let my hands perform His bidding;
Let my feet run in His ways;
Let mine eyes see Jesus only;
Let my lips speak forth His praise.
Worldlings prize their gems of beauty,
Cling to gilded toys of dust;
Boast of wealth and fame and pleasure -
Only Jesus will I trust.
Since mine eyes were fixed on Jesus,
I've lost sight of all beside,
So enchained my spirit's vision,
Looking at the crucified.
Oh what wonder! How amazing!
Jesus, glorious King of kings,
Deigns to call me His beloved,
Lets me rest beneath His wings.
