HIMSELF




Once, it was the blessing,
Now it is the Lord;
Once it was the feeling,
Now it is His Word;
Once His gifts I wanted,
Now the Giver own;
Once, I sought for healing,
Now Himself alone.

All in all for ever,
Jesus will I sing;
Ev’rything in Jesus,
And Jesus ev’ry thing.



Once ‘twas painful trying,
Now ‘tis perfect trust;
Once a half salvation,
Now the uttermost;
Once ‘twas ceaseless holding,
Now He holds me fast;
Once ‘twas constant drifting,
Now my anchor’s cast.

All in all for ever,
Jesus will I sing;
Ev’rything in Jesus,
And Jesus ev’ry thing.



Once ‘twas busy planning,
Now ‘tis trustful prayer;
Once ‘twas anxious caring,
Now He has the care;
Once ‘twas what I wanted,
Now what Jesus says;
Once ‘twas constant asking,
Now ‘tis ceaseless praise.

All in all for ever,
Jesus will I sing;
Ev’rything in Jesus,
And Jesus ev’ry thing.



Once it was my working,
His it hence shall be;
Once I tried to use Him,
Now He uses me;
Once the power I wanted,
Now the Mighty One;
Once for self I laboured,
Now for Him alone.

All in all for ever,
Jesus will I sing;
Ev’rything in Jesus,
And Jesus ev’ry thing.



Once I hoped in Jesus,
Now I know He’s mine;
Once my lamps were dying,
Now they brightly shine;
Once for death I waited,
Now His coming hail;
And my hopes are anchored
Safe within the vail.

All in all for ever,
Jesus will I sing;
Ev’rything in Jesus,
And Jesus ev’ry thing.
