Representative Text

1 Time may tarnish earthly treasures,
Take what I have lov’d before;
Jesus gives abiding pleasures,
Having Him, what need I more?
Having Him, what need I more?

Refrain:
I have Christ and need no more,
From His hand rich gifts outpour,
Lo, I’m singing o’er and o’er,
I have Christ, I need no more.

2 Tho’ the beams of worldly gladness
Fail to light the pathway dim,
Jesus takes away my sadness;
All I need I find in Him.
All I need I find in Him. [Refrain]

3 To His boundless stores of blessing,
Jesus opens wide the door;
All-in-all in Him possessing,
I shall never want for more.
I shall never want for more. [Refrain]
