Full Text

1. I’ve found a friend in Jesus,
He’s all the world to me;
So tender, so loving,
More than I dreamed could be;
He brought me out of darkness
Into His glorious light;
My soul is grateful to Him—
I’ll serve Him with my might.

He’s all the world to me,
He’s all the world to me;
Oh, praise His name forever,
He’s all the world to me.

2. He fills my heart with gladness
And makes my tongue to sing;
’Tis rapture, ’tis glory,
To live for such a king!
The world is brighter round me,
His sunshine richer glows,
Since Christ, my Lord, has found me,
And with me ever goes. [Refrain]

3. Oh, listen! Hear Him calling:
My life for thee I gave,
In sorrow, in anguish,
Thy wayward soul to save!
Oh, quickly answer to Him:
Lord, save a sinful soul;
Thy love has won me to Thee,
Forgive, and make me whole. [Refrain]]
