He's Everything to Me

Here's another wonderful oldie from my childhood. Written in 1964, it may be the first Christian song I learned that wasn't a hymn.

Words & Music by Ralph Carmichael

In the stars His handiwork I see,
On the wind He speaks with majesty,
Tho He ruleth over land and sea,
What is that to me?

I will celebrate Nativity,
For it has a place in history
Sure, He came to set His people free
What is that to me?

Till by faith I met Him face to face
And I felt the wonder of his grace
Then I knew that He was more
Than just a God who didn't care
That lived a way out there

And now He walks beside me day by day,
Ever watching over me lest I stray,
Helping me to find that narrow way
He's Everything To Me.
