Representative Text

1 As fair as the lilies, as spotless as snow,
My life will be joyful and free,
For Christ will be with me wherever I go,
His wonderful glory I’ll see.

His love is so sweet to me,
I’m marching to glory and telling the story
Of love so pure and free.

2 His grace is sufficient to keep me from sin;
Each moment I’m looking above;
Sweet peace I have known since His child I have been,
My heart is so filled with His love. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ precious His treasures of silver and gold,
The gift of His love is the best;
So over and over the story I’ve told
To those who are longing for rest. [Refrain]
