Representative Text

1 Jesus, my Savior, is all things to me;
Oh, what a wonderful Savior is He!
Guiding, protecting, o’er life’s troubled sea,
Mighty Deliv’rer—Jesus for me!

Refrain:
Jesus for me!
Jesus for me!
All the time, everywhere,
Jesus for me!

2 Jesus in sickness, and Jesus in health;
Jesus in poverty, comfort, or wealth;
Sunshine or tempest, whatever it be,
He is my Safety—Jesus for me! [Refrain]

3 He is my Refuge, my Rock, and my Tower—
He is my Fortress, my Strength, and my Power;
Life everlasting, my Day’s man is He,
Blessed Redeemer—Jesus for me! [Refrain]

4 He is my Prophet, my Priest, and my King;
He is my Bread of Life, Fountain, and Spring;
Bright Sun of Righteousness, Day-Star is He;
Horn of Salvation—Jesus for me! [Refrain]

5 Jesus in sorrow, in joy, or in pain;
Jesus my Treasure, in loss or in gain;
Constant Companion where’er I may be;
Living or dying—Jesus for me! [Refrain]

William J. Kirkpatrick (b. Duncannon, PA, 1838; d. Philadelphia, PA, 1921) received his musical training from his father and several other private teachers. A carpenter by trade, he engaged in the furniture business from 1862 to 1878. He left that profession to dedicate his life to music, serving as music director at Grace Methodist Church in Philadelphia. Kirkpatrick compiled some one hundred gospel song collections; his first, Devotional Melodies (1859), was published when he was only twenty-one years old. Many of these collections were first published by the John Hood Company and later by Kirkpatrick's own Praise Publishing Company, both in Philadelphia. Bert Polman Go to person page >
