Jesus only is our message

Jesus only is our message,
Jesus all our theme shall be;
We will lift up Jesus ever,
Jesus only will we see.
  Jesus only, Jesus ever,
Jesus all in all we sing,
Savior, Sanctifier, and Healer,
  Glorious Lord and coming King.
Jesus only is our Savior,
All our guilt He bore away,
He, our righteousness forever,
All our strength from day to day.
Jesus is our Sanctifier,
Saving us from self and sin,
And with all His Spirit's fulness,
Filling all our hearts within.
Jesus only is our Healer,
All our sicknesses He bare,
And His risen life and fulness,
All His members still may share.
Jesus only is our Power,
He the gift of Pentecost;
Jesus, breathe Thy pow'r upon us,
Fill us with the Holy Ghost.
And for Jesus we are waiting,
List'ning for the Advent Call;
But 'twill still be Jesus only,
Jesus ever, all in all.

I just found myself singing the chorus with passion in my heart. I went to take my bathe and sang it all through. I wanted to know the verses, so I searched Google because I knew I would find it.

I'm glad at the verses. Jesus is all that matters. He is our all in all.

I was studying Luke chapter 9 and when I came to verse 36 where I was Peter, James and John found only Jesus alone after Moses and Elijah had left signifying that Jesus was the only One who mattered, it evoked this song in my mind. It is an amazing song.

The Christian and Missionary Alliance was established in 1887 by Brother A. B. Simpson. It was an alliance of Christian missionaries that sent out its members to preach the gospel. Brother Simpson was knowledgeable concerning spiritual matters. He wrote hymns such as "I am crucified with Christ, / And the cross hath set me free" (Hymns, #482), "Jesus only, Jesus ever" (Hymns, #511), and "O Lord, breathe Thy Spirit on me, / Teach me how to breathe Thee in" (Hymns, #255). His hymns are deep, and they contain spiritual experiences and spiritual values. His co-workers also had some spiritual weight, one of whom was the missionary John Woodbury, who along with his younger sister established Shou Chen Chapel in Shanghai.
