952. What Jesus Is to Me

1 I love to tell the story,
What Jesus is to me;
My heart is filled with glory,
Since through His grace I’m free.

Refrain:
I’m drinking at the fountain,
My cup of joy o’erflows;
I live upon the mountain,
My heart no trouble knows.

2 My life is full of sweetness,
My heart is full of rest;
I feel a blest completeness,
While leaning on His breast. [Refrain]

3 My life is blissful sunshine,
No clouds o’erhang my way;
All is a joyous springtime,
A bright and sunny day. [Refrain]

4 I live in blissful Eden,
Where flowers ever bloom;
In pastures green I’m feeding,
My life is free from gloom. [Refrain]

5 Some say there must be shadows,
Each one dark days must see;
But since I found the Savior,
I’ve constant victory. [Refrain]
