Lyrics:

You are my strength when I am weak.
You are the treasure that I seek.
You are my all in all.

Seeking You as a precious jewel,
Lord, to give up I'd be a fool
You are my all in all

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame
Rising up again I bless Your name,
You are my all in all.

When I fall down You pick me up.
When I am dry You fill my cup.
You are my all in all.

||: Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name. :||
