He Is So Precious to Me
Words and Music by Charles H. Gabriel

Philippians 3:8
"Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the
excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord:
for whom I have suffered the loss of all things,
and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,"

PLEASE NOTE - ONLY THE CHORUS IS IN OUR HYMNAL

          So precious is Jesus, my Saviour, my King,
          His praise all the day long with rapture I sing;
          To Him in my weakness for strength I can cling,

            Chorus
            For He is so precious to me,
            For He is so precious to me,
            'Tis Heaven below, My Redeemer to know,
            For He is so precious to me.

          He stood at my heart's door 'mid sunshine and rain,
          And patiently waited an entrance to gain;
          What shame that so long He entreated in vain,

            Chorus
            For He is so precious to me,
            For He is so precious to me,
            'Tis Heaven below, My Redeemer to know,
            For He is so precious to me.

          I stand on the mountain of blessing at last,
          No cloud in the heavens a shadow to cast;
          His smile is upon me, the valley is past,

            Chorus
            For He is so precious to me,
            For He is so precious to me,
            'Tis Heaven below, My Redeemer to know,
            For He is so precious to me.

          I praise Him because He appointed a Place,
          Where, someday, through faith in His wonderful grace,
          I know I shall see Him, shall look on His face.

            Chorus
            For He is so precious to me,
            For He is so precious to me,
            'Tis Heaven below, My Redeemer to know,
            For He is so precious to me.
