1 More Thou art than friend or brother,
Thou art all to me;
Not in earth or heav’n another
Half so dear as Thee.

Chorus:
All in all, O Christ, Thou art,
Thou dost fill my trusting heart;
All in all, O Christ, Thou art,
Thou dost fill my trusting heart.

2 Glad to bring my consecration,
Give my life to Thee;
Glad to know Thy full salvation,
Holier to be. [Chorus]

3 Thou hast washed my soul with whiteness,
I have liberty;
Thou dost fill my life with brightness,
And sincerity. [Chorus]

4 Henceforth Thou my perfect Saviour,
All in all to me;
Walking ever in Thy favor
I Thy face shall see. [Chorus]
