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.

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]
