Husband And Wife Sing Moving Cover Of ‘I Surrender All (All I Am)’

Caleb and Kelsey sing a beautiful rendition of well known Christian hymn ‘I Surrender All (All I Am).’

I Surrender All hymn story

The hymn was originally written by American art teacher and musician Judson W. Van DeVenter. He later became a music minister and evangelist. The music was composed by Winfield S. Weeden, and published in 1896.

All to Jesus I surrender
All to Him I freely give
I will ever love and trust Him
In His presence daily live

Judson Van DeVenter was born in 1855, he graduated from Hillsdale College, and became an art teacher in the public schools of Sharon, Pennsylvania. As an accomplished musician, singer, and composer, he also served in his Methodist Episcopal Church. He was urged by his friends to become an evangelist but kept putting it off. Finally, he surrendered his life to God fully and wrote the hymn ‘I Surrender All.’

All to Jesus I surrender
Humbly at His feet I bow
Worldly pleasures all forsaken
Take me Jesus take me now

Van DeVenter published more than 60 hymns but ‘I Surrender All’ is his most famous. His tombstone is inscribed with the words of his hymn, ‘I Surrender All’.

I surrender all
I surrender all
All to Thee my blessed Saviour
I surrender all

Today as Caleb + Kelsey sing a beautiful duet of this classic song which fits perfectly for the times we are living in currently, we are reminded to surrender everything to Jesus, our lives, our anxiety, our fears…because His love and grace is all that we need now.
