Representative Text

1 All my life in service I would give,
To Christ Who died for me;
For Him alone each moment would I live,
His loyal servant be;
With a purpose true each task pursue,
Just as He my footsteps lead,
Spreading far and near kind words of cheer,
Giving help to those in need.

All my life to work for Jesus,
Who has redeemed me by His grace,
Till at last I’ll stand at His right hand,
And behold Him face to face.

2 Tho’ the tempter may my path assail
I have no need to fear,
Against the hosts of sin I shall prevail
With Christ my King so near;
He will ever be a friend to me,
On His arm I will depend,
For His strength divine is ever mine
And my way He will defend. [Refrain]

3 Seeking ev’ry day His will to do,
What joy shall then be mine,
In thought and word and deed to Him be true,
Who is my King divine.
Lift His banner high when foes are nigh
For there’s victory in store,
At the King’s command with faith to stand
Tho’ the conflict wages sore. [Refrain]
