Jesus is all the world to me

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.
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.
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.
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.

I praise my Lord and Savior, Who is my friend!

I listened wholeheartedly to it in the still small hours of the day. What a comfort and exhortation, the whole hymn is, especially in the 3rd verse, "And true to Him I'll be", which is my commitment! As I am now traveling in this wonderful world of His "when life's fleeting days shall end", verse 4 is my comfort. I thank my Lord for Will L. Thompson for such a lovely hymn.

This has been my favorite song since my childhood & now into senior adulthood it still is. The words are my testimony, Jesus is All the World to Me! Now that the years are flying by and my age is too, the words to verse 4 mean even more to me!! Praise Jesus for being all the world to me!!!

Work up this morning singing this hymn. Started to read the Bible but this hymnal would not leave me. Meditating it. Reminding me as I recover from surgery that Jesus is my all and all. Glory! Hallelujah!!!

Jesus really is ALL the world to me! What a powerful, moving song! I sing this song when I am happy and when I am down and it just has a way of calming my spirit.

For some reasons that I am surely not aware of, the words of this song cannot leave my lips. Truly, I want no better friend.

I don't know what I would do or where I would be without Jesus in control of my life. Without Him life wouldn't be the same and it is to Him I belong. To God be the glory forever and ever!!

Oh, Lord Jesus! He called us FRIENDS! LORD JESUS, my best Friend ever!!! How could I this Friend deny when He is so TRUE to me??!!! John 15:14-15 (King James Version)

14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his Lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

Jesus is all the world to me, He knows my mind, heart and soul more than I do. He is my everlasting Friend who gives me hope and joy. I couldn't ask for more.

Such a warm and inviting song. It is so gently played too, in your recording. I appreciate this site again as I learn more hymns!
