Looking for the hymn "Sweeter Than Them All" ~ Composer is Noah B. Herrell. It's a beautiful hymn that used regularly by Evangelist Paul Quales or Qualls.

Thanks for your help.

Sweeter Than Them All

I have made my choice forever
twixt this world and God's dear Son
not can change my mind, no never
He my heart has fully won
just take this world with all its treasure
take them, take them one and all
give me Christ my precious Savior
for He's sweeter than them all

He's sweeter than them all,
He's sweeter than them all
just give me Christ my precious Savior
for He's sweeter than them all

When my life's work here is ended
when I pass death's open door
When to God I have ascended
and my feet shall press the shore
when my eyes have seen the angels
seen them, seen them one and all
then give me Christ my precious Savior
for He's sweeter than them all

And I felt I could love Him forever
so gracious and tender was He
so I claimed Him that day as my Savior
this stranger of Galilee

Songinmyheart...

Thank you! I really, really appreciate you posting "He's Sweeter Than Them All"

We've seen Paul Quales "The Singing Evangelist" and man used by the with Song and message mixed. I remember one service when Paul began to sing "Jesus Is The Sweetest Name I Know", he got through the fist line and the was weeping and praising the Lord for about ten minutes, a truly blessed time in the presence of the Lord, then Paul went on to finish the song.e

I'm going to use this hymn for one of our Sunday services at the nursing. Encouraging and assuring the nursing home resident's is a real big part of our program, and with letting them know they are loved and cared for.

Again, thank you very much, you've brought much joy and cheer to this chaplain's heart.

Here are the original lyrics to this song:

I have made my choice forever, 'twixt this world and God's dear Son,
Naught can change my mind, no, never, He my heart has fully won.
Take this world with all its pleasures, take them, take them, great and small,
Give me Christ, my precious Savior, He is sweeter than them all.

CHORUS:
Sweeter, sweeter than them all, sweeter sweeter than them all,
Give me Christ, my precious Savior, He is sweeter than them all.

Since I made my choice forever, since I walk with Christ, my Lord,
Life to me grows richer, sweeter, as I listen to His word.
Take this world with all its treasures, take them, take them, great and small,
Give me Christ, my precious Savior, He is sweeter than them all.

Since I made my choice for heaven, since Christ is my dearest Friend,
Though by earthly friends forsaken, yet on Christ I can depend.
Take my friends and earthly friendships, take them, take them, one and all,
Give me Christ, my precious Savior, He is sweeter than them all.

When my life's work here is ended, when I pass death's open door,
When to God I have ascended, when my feet shall press the shore,
When my eyes have seen the angels, seen them, seen them, great and small,
Give me Christ, my precious Savior, He is sweeter than them all.

Here is another version found here:
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=TvA_s7EzPiE

I have made my choice forever

1) I have made my choice forever
'Twixt this world and God's dear Son
Naught can change my mind, no never
He my heart has fully won
Take this world and all its pleasure
Take it, take it, one and all
Give me Christ, my precious Saviour
He is sweeter than them all


Chorus: Sweeter, sweeter, than them all (x2)
Give me Christ, my precious Saviour
He is sweeter than them all


2) Since I've made my choice forever
Since my heart's been fully won
I've found life, true life as never
Yes, this world can offer none
Oh, the firm, sweet hope, assurance
Found in Christ, and Him alone
Gives me patience and endurance
He is sweeter than them all


3) Now mine heart is yearning, longing
Be with Christ, my all He is
In His presence daily dwelling
Fellowship with Him 'tis bliss
But my work on earth must finish
Ere I hear my homeward call
Do His sweet will lest some perish
He is sweeter than them all


4) Now for Christ's sake toil and labour
In His footsteps daily tread
Closely follow, turning never
Cleansed and washed from each foul spot
So the crown'll be won forever
And His voice will ring, "Well done!"
Sweeter words, I'll hear, no never
He is sweeter than them all!
