Representative Text

1 He will hear me when I call,
He will help me when I fall,
My Saviour, my Saviour;
He will give me strength to bear
Ev'ry grief that may appear;
My all in all is he.

Yes, a satisfying portion is my Saviour,
My Saviour, my Saviour;
My rock, my stay, by night and day,
My all in all is he.

2 I will labor, I will pray,
I will trust him ev'ry day,
My Saviour, my Saviour;
I will look to him in faith,
I will trust him until death;
My all in all is he. [Chorus]

3 When I'm weary and distressed,
I will go to him for rest,
My Saviour, my Saviour;
To his loving arms I'll fly,
Ev'ry need he will supply;
My all in all is he. [Chorus]

4 May I never, never stray
From thy precious side away,
My Saviour, my Saviour;
Naught of evil will I fear,
While I have my Saviour near;
My all in all is he. [Chorus]
