Jesus Is All The World To Me

Today was one of those mixed kind of days – lots of good and plenty of frustration. There is something about changing weather that changes attitudes. I am not immune to this. My attitude changes when the weather changes. My girls’ attitudes change when the weather changes. And frustrations seem to multiply. But, this song was running through my head. And what a peace it brings to my heart.

Jesus is my friend. He is always with me. He is the one I cry out to when my frustrations overwhelm and he strengthens me. He brings gladness back to my life when I have lost sight of the good. He walks with me through difficulties and frustrations. He blesses my life here on this earth. Even better, I have eternal life and eternal joy with Him coming when these “fleeting days shall end,”

I do love the pep and spirit of this hymn and the joy it reminds me of on days like today when the darkness tries to creep in and strangle the good out of the day. Hymns like this help me reclaim the promises of Christ and place my focus back on Him.

At Home.

Jesus Is All The World To Me

Jesus Is All The World To Me

lyrics and music: Will L Thompson (1904)

1 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.

2 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.

3 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.

4 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.
