Representative Text

1 Glory to Jesus, my King and my Lord,
I am reposing my trust on His word;
Wash’d in the fountain that cleanseth from sin,
Glory to Jesus, I’m happy within.

Rivers of love all boundless and free,
Glory to Jesus, are flowing, flowing for me.

2 Glory to Jesus, how bright is my way!
Cheered by His presence and blessing today;
Souls for His kingdom He helps me to win,
Glory to Jesus, I’m happy within. [Refrain]

3 Glory to Jesus, the transport I feel
Language can never, no, never reveal;
He has redeemed me and cleans’d me from sin,
Glory to Jesus, I’m happy within. [Refrain]

4 Glory to Jesus, I’ll follow Him still,
Patiently waiting and doing His will;
Then when my journey is finished below,
Shouting and singing to Him I shall go. [Refrain]
