Representative Text

1 I am satisfied with Jesus,
Best of friends is He to me;
I can never do without him,
He is all in all to me.

Refrain:
I am satisfied with Jesus,
He is all in all to me;
I am satisfied with Jesus,
He is all in all to me.

2 I am satisfied with Jesus,
He is with me day by day;
When all other friends forsake me,
He is with me by the way. [Refrain]

3 I am satisfied with Jesus,
He has proved a Friend indeed;
Since in His love I have trusted,
He has met my ev’ry need. [Refrain]

4 I am satisfied with Jesus;
In the hour of sorrow’s night,
When with loved ones I am parting,
He reveals His wondrous light. [Refrain]

After attending a revival meeting by Reuben Torrey and Charles M. Alexander, Harkness became Alexander’s pianist. He came to Christ shortly thereafter (on a bicycle, he said), and made several round the world tours with Torrey and Alexander. Harkness was especially well known for his program The Music of the Cross, and as the author of correspondence courses in hymn playing. He wrote over 2,000 hymns and Gospel songs in his lifetime.
