1. I love the blessed Saviour, He's all in all to me;
I could not live without him, Since grace has made me free.
The friends of earth are many, And very dear to me;
But Christ is far more precious Than they could ever be.
Without my blessed Saviour,
How dark my life would be!
I never can forsake him,
He's all in all to me.
2. I tell him all my trials, I bring to him my cares;
He ever walks beside me, And every burden bears.
Who else could thus go with me? Who else such help could give?
What friend of earth would offer His life that I might live? [Chorus]
3. He's ever kind and gentle, And patient ev'ry day;
He never is too weary To listen when I pray.
He does not chide me harshly, Although I often fail;
He's willing to forgive me He knows I'm weak and frail. [Chorus]
4. When I am tired and weary And lay me down to sleep,
My Saviour still is near me A faithful watch to keep.
And when the day is dawning, His presence still is near;
My Lord is ever with me To comfort and to cheer. [Chorus]
