Representative Text

1. All day long of Jesus I am singing,
He my song of joy will ever be;
All the while He keeps my heart-bells ringing,
For His love is ev’rything to me.

Refrain
He’s my king, and O I dearly love Him,
He’s my king, no other is above Him;
All day long enraptured praise I sing,
He’s my Savior, He’s my king!

2. Streams of love around my soul are flowing,
From His heart love’s everlasting spring;
That is why my faith in Him I’m showing,
That is why an endless song I sing. [Refrain]

3. In His light, I’m going home to glory,
With the souls who trust His saving grace;
Going home to sing and tell His story,
In the blessèd sunshine of His face. [Refrain]
