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.”
Refrain: Christ is all, all in all, Yes, Christ is all in all; Christ is all, all in all, Yes, Christ is all in all.
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.”
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.”
I saw the gospel herald go To Afric’s sand and Greenland’s snow, To save from Satan’s thrall; Nor home nor life he counted dear, Midst wants and perils owned no fear, He felt that “Christ is all.”
I dreamed that hoary time had fled, And earth and sea gave up their dead, A fire dissolved this ball; I saw the church’s ransomed throng, I heard the burden of their song, ’Twas “Christ is all in all.”
Then come to Christ, oh, 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.”
