Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Christ is all in all

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]
