Jesus Is All The World To Me

Will Thompson was talented in music. He studied music in Boston and Germany. He tried to sell his music to major publishers but was turned down so he established his own music publishing company – “Will L. Thompson & Co.”

Later he devoted himself exclusively to Christian music and wrote “Softly and Tenderly Jesus Is Calling” and “There’s A Great Day Coming” and this lovely hymn as well. Will was also a philathropist and heavily supported the local YMCA and Emmanuel Presbyterian Church. He also donated acreage for a park that bears his name to this day, stipulating that no alcoholic beverages be allowed in the park and no sports permitted there on Sundays.

Lyrics and Music: Will L. Thompson

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 over 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;
O 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.

What an inspiring hymn and hymn writer!

    Jesus Christ is all for me and Whom shall I need?
    Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must saved.

    Thank you.
    This is beautiful and comforting.
    We used to sing this song in church when I was little.
    It brings back good memories to hear it and to read the lyrics.
    God Bless you and all those who come to this site.
