Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Representative Text

1 I once was in the desert, all weary, sad and lone,
Until my Saviour told me that I was still His own,
He bade me leave my folly and from the danger flee,
And since I found the Saviour, He's ev'rything to me.

Chorus:
He's ev'rything, yes, ev'rything to me,
He's ev'rything, yes, ev'rything to me,
Thro' night and day,
Where'er I stray,
He's ev'rything to me.

2 I left the barren desert and sought His loving face,
Depending on His mercy and on His saving grace;
He smiled upon me gently; from sin He set me free,
And since I found the Saviour, He's ev'rything to me. [Chorus]

3 He gives me joyous singing and makes the sun to shine,
And oft He smiles upon me, and then I know He's mine,
He carries all my burdens and keep me on life's sea,
For since I'll sing in triumph: "He's ev'rything to me. [Chorus]

4 And in the silent watch of the lonely midnight hour,
He comes my soul to rescue and shows His mighty pow'r,
And when the light of glory comes shining o'er death's sea,
O then I'll sing in triumph: "He's ev'rything to me. [Chorus]
