Representative Text

1 This world has its treasures of silver and gold,
Its pearls and its diamonds, its wealth is untold;
But Jesus, who died upon Calvary’s tree,
Is more than all this world to me (to me).

Refrain:
He’s more than all to me;
He’s more than all to me;
He’s more than all this world to me,
He’s more than all to me.

2 This world with its show of allurements of wrong,
May try to entice me and take me along;
But clinging to Jesus, its folly I see—
He’s more than all this world to me (to me). [Refrain]

3 He comforts and cheers me in trials of life;
His arm is around me when evil is rife;
A friend and a loving companion is He—
He’s more than all this world to me (to me). [Refrain]
