"HE'S ALL I NEED"

Verse 1
Forced to leave my home, surviving on my own,
I need someone to turn to, ‘cause I have nowhere to go.
My will to live is dying, as helplessly I’m trying
To escape this lonely nightmare,
And beloved for who I am.

Verse 2
But then I met someone who’d also lost his home,
But a certain strength within him gives him peace and makes him smile.
He said he, too, had felt forsaken,
Misfortune left his spirit broken,
And when he almost gave up hoping,
Came a love that made him strong.

Chorus 1
When everything else passed me by, then I found Jesus!
All others may forsake me, but He never goes away.
When this world has nothing left for me,
I’ll still have Jesus!
I’m never alone since I found Jesus, and He’s all I need.
--He’s all I need. --

Verse 3
This friend spoke of love that never dies,
With compassion in his eyes, and said there’s Someone I could turn to,
Who’ll be with me through it all.
With God’s loving arms around me,
And everlasting joy within me,
I’ve found happiness in living, since I made these words my own:

Chorus 2
When everything else passed me by, then I found Jesus!
All others may forsake me, but He never goes away.
When this world has nothing left for me,
I’ll still have Jesus!
I’m never alone since I found Jesus, and He’s all I need.

Chorus 3
[When everything else passed me by,] oh, I found Jesus! [Jesus]
All others may forsake me, but He never goes away.
When this world has nothing left for me,
I’ll still have Jesus!
I’m never alone since I found Jesus, and He’s all I need.
Ooh-ooh-ooh,ooh-ooh.
You’re all I need, Jesus, all I need.
