JESUS IS ALL THE WORLD TO ME

(G)Jesus is (C)all the (D)world to (G)me,
 My (C)life , my (D)joy, my (G)all;
He (D)is my strength from (G)day to day,
With(D)out Him (A)I (C)would (D)fall:
(G)When I am sad to Him I go,
No other one can cheer me so;
(Em)When I am (C)sad (G)He makes me (D)glad,
(G)He's (D)my (G)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.
