If I Gained The World But Lost The Saviour,
Were My Life Worth Living For A Day?
Could My Yearning Heart Find Rest And Comfort
In The Things That Soon Must Pass Away?
If I Gained The World, But Lost The Saviour,
Would My Gain Be Worth The Life-Long Strife?
Are All Earthly Pleasures Worth Comparing
For A Moment With A Christ-Filled Life?

Had I Wealth And Love In Fullest Measure,
And A Name Revered Both Far And Near,
Yet No Hope Beyond, No Harbour Waiting
Where My Storm-Tossed Vessel I Could Steer –
If I Gained The World, But Lost The Saviour,
Who Endured The Cross And Died For Me,
Could Then All The World Afford A Refuge,
Whither In My Anguish I Might Flee?

O What Emptiness Without The Saviour
Mid The Sins And Sorrows Here Below!
And Eternity, How Dark Without Him,
Only Night And Tears And Endless Woe!
What Though I Might Live Without The Saviour,
When I Come To Die, How Would It Be?
O To Face The Valley’s Gloom Without Him!
And Without Him All Eternity!

O The Joy Of Having All In Jesus!
What A Balm The Broken Heart To Heal!
Never A Sin So Great But He Will Forgive It,
Nor A Sorrow That He Does Not Feel!
If I Have But Jesus, Only Jesus,
Nothing Else In All The World Beside,
O Then Everything Is Mine In Jesus
For My Needs And More He Will Provide
