Christ Is All
Words: W. A. Williams
Music: Christ Is All | W. A. Williams
1. I entered once a home of care,
For age and penury were there,
Yet peace and joy withal;
I asked the lonely mother whence
Her helpless widowhood’s defense;
She told me, “Christ is all.”

2. I stood beside a dying bed,
Where lay a child with aching head,
Waiting for Jesus’ call;
I marked his smile, ’twas sweet as May;
And as his spirit passed away,
He whispered, “Christ is all.”

3. I saw a martyr at the stake,
The flames could not his courage shake,
Nor death his soul appall;
I asked him whence his strength was giv’n;
He looked triumphantly to Heav’n,
And answered, “Christ is all.”

4. I saw the gospel herald go
To Afric’s sand and Greenland’s snow
To save from Satan’s thrall;
No home nor life he counted dear
Midst wants and perils owned no fear
He knew that, “Christ is all.”

5. I dreamed that hoary time had fled,
That earth and sea gave up their dead,
A fire dissolved this ball;
I saw the saints a ransomed throng,
I heard the burden of their song,
’Twas “Christ is, Christ is all.”

6. Then come to Christ, O come today,
The Father, Son, and Spirit say,
The Bride repeats the call;
For He will cleanse your guilty stains,
His love will soothe your weary pains,
For “Christ is all in all.”

Christ is all, all in all,
Yes, Christ is all in all;
Christ is all, all in all,
Yes, Christ is all in all.
