Jack Greene had a big hit in 1966 with his original version of Frazier's "There Goes My Everything" (see below)—notice anything about the title? Pretty similar, isn't it? That's because composer Dallas Frazier simply rewrote the lyrics to his earlier secular success to come up with this modern gospel number, the original version of which Charlie Walker included on his 1968 album on Epic BN 26424, also called "He Is My Everything."


He Is My Everything
performed by:
Charlie Walker



He is my reason for living
He is my everything

I remember my days of darkness
Without sunshine or a sign to lead my way

Then a whisper of his voice softly calling
To the arms of my maker to stay

He is my reason for living,
He is the king of all kings
I long to be his possession,
He is my everything

After the lighting and thunder
After the last bell has rung

I want to bow down before jesus
And hear him say well done my son

He is my reason for living
He is the king of all kings
I long to be his possession
He is my everything

I long to be his possession
He is my everything





He Is My Everything
performed by:
Elvis Presley



I long to be his possession
Oh, he is my everything

I remember my days of darkness
Without sunshine or a sign to lead the way

But a whisper of his voice softly calling
To the arms of my maker to stay

He is my reason for living,
Oh he is the king of all kings
I long to be his possession,
Oh, he is my everything

After the lighting and thunder
After the last bell has rung

I want to bow down before him
And hear him say well done

He is my reason for living
Oh he is the king of all kings
I long to be his possession
Oh, he is my everything

I long to be his possession
Oh, he is my everything
