Representative Text

1 Deep in the love of my Savior dear,
Kept by His grace so happy and free,
Helping the lost the glad message to hear,
Always together are we.

Refrain:
Always together, my Lord and I,
Nearing the beautiful goal;
More and more, as the days go by,
He is the joy of my soul.

2 Shielding my heart when the foe appears,
Causing my life a blessing to be,
Making me His evermore thro’ the years,
Always together are we. [Refrain]

3 So that where joy-bells forever ring
His blessed face at last I may see,—
So that forever His praise I may sing,
Always together are we. [Refrain]
