Full Text

1. When I was in trouble, my way was dark as night,
But Jesus gave me comfort, and brought me to the light;
He took away my sorrow, and made my burden light,
He is everything to me.

Refrain:
If it wasn’t for the Lord, tell me what would I do?
Oh, tell me, what would I do? Oh, tell me, what would I do?
If it wasn’t for the Lord, tell me, what would I do?
He is everything to me.

2. He is bread in dry places, He’s water in a thirsty land;
He is my rock and shelter, He holds me by the hand;
And when my friends forsake me, close by my side He’ll stand,
He is everything to me.

3. So when my life is ended, and I must surely die,
Then He will be my gateway up to that home on high;
And in that golden city, there’ll be no more goodbyes,
He is everything to me.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
