Representative Text

I BRING to thee my heart to fill;
I feel how weak I am, but still
To thee for help I call.
In joy or grief, to live or die,
For earth or Heaven, this is my cry,
Be thou my all in all.

Refrain:
Christ is all, yes, all in all,
My Christ is all in all.

2 Around me in the world I see
No joy that turns my soul from thee;
Its honours fade and fall;
But with thee, though I mount the cross,
I count it gain to suffer loss,
For thou art all in all.

3 I’ve little strength to call my own,
And what I’ve done, before thy throne
I here confess, is small;
But on thy strength, O God, I lean,
And through the blood that makes me clean,
Thou art my all in all.

4 No tempest can my courage shake,
My love from thee no pain can take,
No fear my heart appal;
And where I cannot see I’ll trust,
For then I know thou surely must
Be still my all in all.
