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.

This was one of my favorite songs during our 17 years at Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis. I can almost hear Jim Whitmire leading the congregation now. I enjoy accessing the music and lyrics online and singing to the Lord. It brings back wonderful memories of our years under the teaching and leafing of Dr. Adrian Rogers. I am looking forward to hearing his booming voice when I get to Heaven. It won't be long now, as I turned 80 last Saturday.

The song was the major song of one of the retreat held by Deeper Life Bible Church. I was in children church then. Despite the fact that I was a child when it happened, it left and impression on me and it have become one of my most favorite song since. Now, navigating the world as an adult, “Jesus is all the world to me”, and “Following him, I know I am right”, “He is my friend”.

Love the old hymns we sang as Children years ago. The new songs are nice, but something about the precious old hymns. This one came back to me today in my Worship time. God bring us back to what really matters!

This is one of my favorite hymns since I learned it in my youth. And the words mean a lot more to me now that I am old.

My best friend of 50 years just went home to be with Jesus. I've been missing her very much lately, so I asked Jesus to be a Friend to me in my loneliness, and this hymn just came to my mind today. It is an answer to my prayer and comforts me greatly.
