All That I Am I Owe To Thee

One hymn that I found when looking for an offertory, for a day my senior pastor was preaching on reliance on God, is "All That I Am I Owe To Thee." Based on Psalm 139, the words are from the Scottish Psalter, and there are actually three different tunes that have been commonly paired with it.

1. "Federal Street" by Henry K. Oliver.

2. "St. Crispin" by George Elvey, though this tune was composed for the lyrics of the hymn "Just As I Am," made popular by the late Rev. Dr. Billy Graham.

3. Ian Fitchuk of Indelible Grace composed a new tune for it as well.

Lyrics below:

All that I am I owe to Thee,

Thy wisdom, Lord, has fashioned me.

I give my Maker thankful praise,

whose wondrous works my soul amaze.

Ere into being I was brought, Thine eye did see, and in thy thought

My life in all its perfect plan Was ordered ere my days began.

Thy thoughts, O God, how manifold,

More precious unto me than gold! I muse on their infinity, Awaking I am still with thee.

Search me, O God, my heart discern;

Try me, my inmost thought to learn;

And lead me, if in sin I stray, To choose the everlasting way.
