The World All About Me Has Now No Allure


The world all about me has now no allure:
Its pleasure ring pain,
Its wisdom is vain;
I seek a foundation that’s steadfast and sure:
I’ll put Jesus first in my life.

Chorus:
In all that I say,
In all that I do,
Thro’out the world of toil and strife,
By day and by night,
Thro’ trust in His might,
I’ll put Jesus first in my life.

The Lord Jesus died my salvation to win:
He went in my stead
To Calv’ry and bled;
Redemption impels me to give up all sin:
I’ll put Jesus first in my life. (Chorus)

I know there’s a home for the ransomed and blest,
When death is no more,
When struggle is o’er,
For those who love Jesus and give Him their best:
I’ll put Jesus first in my life. (Chorus)

Tho’ earth’s tribulations continue each day,
Tho’ pleasure may call,
Tho’ evil enthrall,
His grace will protect me forever and aye:
I’ll put Jesus first in my life. (Chorus)
