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 heard this hymn just once at Deeper life Bible church. It has since stuck in my head because the tune and lyrics were inspiring and loving.

I first heard this song during the Institute of Medical Missions (IMM) training organized by the Christian Medical & Dental Association (CMDA), September 2017 at Wusasa - Zaria (Northern Nigeria). And what a blessing it has been to my life. Unfortunately, songs like this are rarely sang in our Churches today.

This is a song by AB Simpson. Founder of the Christian and Missionary Alliance. The tune has been updated by an Alliance Contemporary Christian Artist. I heard it sung by that artist at the Canadian Alliance Assembly about ten years ago now. We sang it tonight at the Mid-Atlantic District Conference of The C&MA. what a powerful message, what an amazing savior we serve. Savior, Sanctifier, Healer and Coming King. And He is so much more!!! It is all about Him. He love us so...

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.
