Melodies of Praise Lyrics
Hymn No.131

First Line: In sin I once had wandered,

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.

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.

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]

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]
