1 Jesus is all the world to me,
my life, my joy, my all;
He is my strength from day to day,
without Him I would fall:
when I am sad, to Him I go;
no other one can cheer me so;
when I am sad, He makes me glad;
He's my friend.

2 Jesus is all the world to me,
my friend in trials sore;
I go to Him for blessings,
and He gives them o'er and o'er:
He sends the sunshine and the rain,
He sends the harvest's golden grain;
sunshine and rain, harvest of grain;
He's my friend.

3 Jesus is all the world to me,
and true to Him I'll be;
oh, how could I this friend deny
when He's so true to me?
Following Him, I know I'm right,
He watches o'er me day and night;
Following Him, by day and night;
He's my friend.

4 Jesus is all the world to me,
I want no better friend;
I trust Him now, I'll trust Him when
Life's fleeting days shall end:
beautiful life with such a friend,
beautiful life that has no end;
eternal life, eternal joy;
He's my friend.

He lat­er ex­pand­ed, open­ing a store to sell pi­an­os, or­gans and sheet mu­sic. Both a lyr­i­cist and com­pos­er, he en­sured he would al­ways re­mem­ber words or mel­o­dies that came to him at odd times: "No mat­ter where I am, at home or ho­tel, at the store or tra­vel­ing, if an idea or theme comes to me that I deem wor­thy of a song, I jot it down in verse.
