And he is before all things and by him all things consist.
Scripture verses for the Biblical references in this song: All Things to All
He is a path to the misled
And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not;
I will lead them in paths that they have not known:
I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight.
These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
And to the hungry, He is bread
And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life:
he that cometh to me shall never hunger;
and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
To the prisoner, He is free,
I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand,
and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light to the Gentiles;
To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison,
and to them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.
I am the Lord: that is my name:
and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
And to the weak, how strong is He!
For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.
And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions,
in distresses for Christ's sake:
for when I am weak, then am I strong.
(2 Corinthians 12:8-10)
To those in darkness, He is light,
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness,
hath shined in our hearts,
to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God
in the face of Jesus Christ.
(2 Corinthians 4:6)
And to the blinded, He is sight,
Then Jesus answering said unto them,
Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard;
how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear,
the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.
And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
To the broken, He is health,
He healeth the broken in heart,
and bindeth up their wounds.
And to the needy, He is wealth.
But my God shall supply all your need
according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
He is defender of the scorned,
But thou, O Lord, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision.
Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is my defence.
But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning:
for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.
Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy.
(Psalm 59:8-9, 16-17)
A comfort to the ones who mourn,
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
To the weary, He is rest,
Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.
And He is hope to the oppressed.
The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed,
a refuge in times of trouble.
O He is courage to the meek,
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage;
be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed:
for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
The answer to the ones who seek,
Ask, and it shall be given you;
seek, and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
For every one that asketh receiveth;
and he that seeketh findeth;
and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Yes, He is peace to those in strife,
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
And to the dying, He is life.
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life:
he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.
Believest thou this?
We have no greater friend than He,
Who satisfies our every need.
Source of what was, what is, will be,
All things to all He is indeed!
