Representative Text

1 Are we keeping close to Jesus,
Hour by hour and day by day?
All His blest commands obeying,
As we journey on the way?

let us serve our Lord with gladness,
Let us labor, watch and pray;
Thus be keeping close to Jesus,
All along our pilgrim way.

2 Are we walking in the sunshine?
Are we dwelling in His love?
Are we day by day receiving,
Inspiration from above? [Refrain]

3 Are we ever true and faithful,
Serving Jesus with a will?
Do we prove a light to others,
Like a city on a hill? [Refrain]
