While Waiting

Store up in anticipation

Paint the body not with earth

Lay up wealth above

Know the signs

Store up in anticipation

Paint the body not with earth

Lay up wealth above

Know the signs

See the signals

Understand the signs

No longer long

Forewarned signals flashing

Drums rolling

Move, hold steady

Get packing

O sheep of the LAMB

Wait for HIS descending and

Your ascension to eternal life

A Comforting hymn: Jesus is all the world to me

Music is a part of life and does miracles to the soul. This beautiful hymn does a lot of wonderful things to me just as the lyrics speaks. It could be said to be among my best. I hope it comforts you too.

A hymn by Will Thompson in

SDAH 185 – Jesus Is All the World to Me

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.

2

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.

3

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.

4

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.
