He's everything to me

This song came across my mind this morning when I was doing devotions with my three sons. We were talking about What do I Know to be True About GOD today? and that's when the song came to mind. Believe it or not, I remembered it but not all of it.
When I was growing up in St. Kitts, we had assembly every morning in school and we sang songs of priase. It was there that I learned this song, among many others. I was in 1st grade at the time.
GOD is truly amazing!!!!!
Thank you so much for posting the words here on your site.

I too am 47 years old. I also put the title of the song in a search engine to find who wrote or sang the song. In the late 1960's I attended a Leighton Ford Crusade in Erie Pennsylvania where this song was printed up and sung. I never forgot the words or the tune. I heard it said recently that we will be familiar with some songs in heaven since some of the ones we sing here originated there. " That will be glory, be glory for me." Blessings from PA

Thank you for all the words to this song! I used to sing it in youth group. There were other great songs from that era that the youth of today dont know --a favotite was one was called "I believe in you"that had as part of the lyrics--Sunday morning I read your book by colored light that came in through a pretty window picture...they passed a basket with some envelopes I just had time to write a note a note and all it said was I believe in you" Remember? Too bad they dont use these old songs!!

Yes, you found the one you wanted. But the first one I thought of was the one written by Kate Ulmer, music by Hamp Sewell, from 1907. We sang in church when I was a boy -- in the early 1950's. Found it on "Cyberhymnal" with a title the same as the 1st line.

IN SIN I ONCE HAD WANDERED
(HE'S EVERYTHING TO ME)
W. by Kate Ulmer 1907 M by Hamp Sewell
http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/i/n/insionce.htm
Words also attributed to Kate Byron

1. In sin I once had wandered, All weary, sad, and lone,
Till Jesus through His mercy -- Adopted me His own.
E'er since I learned to trust Him, His grace doth make me free,
And now I feel His pardon, He's everything to me.

Refrain:
He's everything to me, From sin He sets me free,
His peace and love my portion -- Through all eternity!
He's everything to me, More than I dreamed could be.
O praise His Name forever! He's everything to me.

2. In sin no more I'll wander; He's Pilot, Friend, and Guide;
He brings me joy and singing; His Spirit doth abide.
A blessèd, loving Savior, The Lamb of Calvary!
He purchased my redemption. He's everything to me.

Refrain

3. No longer will I stray from -- His tender, loving care;
Like Him to be my purpose, My aim, my constant prayer.
And when He bids me welcome -- Throughout eternity,
I'll praise His Name forever. He's everything to me.

Refrain

This song has been on my mind lately. I used to sing it in youth choir in about 1967/68. I was just asking my Pastor last night if he knew it. I sang all that I could remember for him but he didn;t know it. So today out of despairation I googled it and found it here. God indeed is mindful of our needs,

I run the sound system at our church and the worship leader is my boss. I was singing this song at lunch the other day and was looking for the lyrics. Googled it and here I am. Thank you. Marshall Vorhies
