Representative Text

1 Ev’ry little step I take,
My Saviour knows.
Watching near for love’s dear sake,
My Saviour knows.
When I sin and disobey,
Or when I forget to pray,
All I think of day by day,
My Saviour knows.

The Saviour knows, He watches near;
My whisper low, He bends to hear;
He knows my heart, He knows my way;
O let me please Him day by day.

2 When my heart is very glad,
My Saviour knows.
When I’m troubled, when I’m sad,
My Saviour knows.
In my work and at my play,
Jesus hears whate’er I say;
Ev’ry deed along the way,
My Saviour knows. [Refrain]

3 I am timid, weak, and small,
My Saviour knows.
How to help me when I fall,
My Saviour knows.
Jesus holds me by the hand,
Bids me follow His command;
What I do not understand,
My Saviour knows. [Refrain]
