One day in 1873 hymnist Frances Havergal received a little book entitled “All For Jesus.” It stressed the importance of making Christ the king of every corner of one’s life. Soon afterward, she found herself visiting with a group of ten people, some of them unconverted, others not yet fully devoted to Christ. She prayed, and went to work witnessing, and before she left all ten were yielded Christians. On the last night of her visit, she wrote this great hymn about allowing God to own and control one’s entire life. In the years that followed, Frances often used it in her own devotions.
