And can I yet delay?

1 And can I yet delay
  My little All to give?
  To tear my soul from earth away,
  For Jesus to receive?

2 Nay, but I yield, I yield!
  I can hold out no more;
  I sink by dying love compell'd,
  And own the conqueror!

3 Though late I all forsake,
  My friends, my All resign:
  Gracious Redeemer, take, O take,
  And seal me ever thine!

4 Come, and possess me whole,
  Nor hence again remove;
  Settle and fix my wav'ring soul,
  With all thy weight of love.

5 My one desire be this,
  Thy only love to know:
  To seek and taste no other bliss,
  No other good below,

6 My life, my portion thou,
  Thou all-sufficient art,
  My hope, my heav'nly treasure, now
  Enter, and keep my heart!
