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?

Refrain:
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]
