Representative Text

1 A thousand tongues could ne’er impart
The gladness of a trusting heart;
There’s life eternal, free from pain,
For all who dwell upon this plain.

Refrain:
Obey the truth of God’s dear Son
Until life’s journey shall be done,
And He will take you home to rest,
Forever with the pure and blest.

2 ’Twas thro’ His Gospel to the world
Our earthly freedom was unfurled,
And thro’ His blood, for you and me,
There’s joy and immortality. [Refrain]

3 No one but Christ has power to save
He rose a victor o’er the grave.
And till His glories you shall view,
To Him be faithful and be true. [Refrain]
