Hymn & Scripture Challenge #9, I Surrender All

I am really enjoying this Hymn Scripture Challenge and today I am posting another one of my favorite old hymns that I can remember singing in church quite often and still sing some.  There are times I miss singing these old hymns and when I saw this one, I thought what a great song!  It just captures so much of how much we should trust our Lord and surrender it all to Him.  No matter how much I try, I can't do it without my Lord! And, the times I try to do it without Him, I realize just how insignificant I am without Him.

I chose two verses here that make me think of surrendering all, for when I surrender it to our Lord I know that there is no need to be afraid because He will defend and take care of me through it all and I also know that even through it all I can have joy and be joyful in the Lord! 

"But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee." Psalm 5:11

"Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you." Psalm 56:3

And, don't forget to stop by Patters page and see her post as she always has such a beautiful write up!

I am also entering this into two other challenges:
