Nothing But The Whole Wide World’ Glen Campbell And Eric Clapton Lyric Video

The late and legendary Glen Campbell was joined by fellow musician Eric Clapton for a lovely and emotional duet of “Nothing but the Whole Wide World to Gain.”

There are no differences between human beings. Some people may have more material possessions, live in a bigger house or have a fatter bank account. But those are superficial, and at the end of the day, at the end of our lives, those are meaningless. 

From dust, we began and to dust that we’ll eventually return to one day. That may sound morbid, but God has a plan and will for each person on Earth. He has equipped everyone with different skills and talents to achieve the plans He has for our lives. 

In a clip posted on YouTube, Glen and Eric sing “Nothing but the Whole Wide World to Gain.” It’s a tune that mentions how God has plans for all. The good Lord wants us to remain busy, always working toward those plans.

“And no rich man’s worth his weight in dust
They bury him down same as they’ll do to us
God wants you busy, never giving up
He wants nothing but the whole wide world for us”

The song also mentions how, regardless of one’s background, everyone's the same. Some may begin life with a bigger advantage than others. But at the end of the day, everyone is still a human being. 

However, it’s the time between birth and death that God has given us and what we do with it that truly matters. After our time on Earth is over, all will have to answer to God for how we used the time He gave us. That’s a humbling and possibly distressing thought, but God wants nothing but the best for us and our lives, as the song mentions. 

Ephesians 5:19 “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;”
