Jesus Is All

Jesus is all this world to me
My life, my strength, my all
He gives me strength from day to day
Without him I would fall

When I am sad to him I go
No other one can cheer me so
When I am sad
He makes me glad
He's my friend.

 

Submitter comment:

Spiritual song.
This song is sung very slow and with great feeling. Many times it is sung when one is sad or depressed. It is sung at church too in the same slow way.

I Made a Vow

I made a vow to the Lord
and I won't take it back
I made a vow to the Lord
and I won't take it back
I made a vow to the Lord
and I won't take it back
I made a vow, made a vow
and I won't take it back.

Submitter comment:

Spritual song.
This song is usually led by one person; then everyone else follows in by saying "I won't take it back." Many times the leader changes words around or places different words in the song.
