Representative Text

1 I stood beside her dying bed,
And as she raised her drooping head,
“Christ is all in all,” she said,
“Christ is all in all.”

Refrain:
So when we here shall come to die,
And angels point to realms on high,
Oh, may this be our parting sigh,
“Christ is all in all.”

2 But soon they whispered, “She is dead;”
Still on her lips a smile there played;
“Christ is all in all,” I said,
“Christ is all in all.” [Refrain]

3 As in the ground her from we laid,
And “dust to dust” God’s servant read,
“Christ is all in all,” he said,
“Christ is all in all.” [Refrain]

4 And telling how she oft has prayed,
And of the triumph she had made,
“Christ is all in all,” we said,
“Christ is all in all.” [Refrain]
