Representative Text

1 Happy am I ev’ry hour of the day,
Singing of mercy divine;
I’m following ever the heavenly way,
O what a Saviour is mine!

Refrain:
O what a Saviour is mine!
O what a Saviour divine!
Now onward I’m going, with praise overflowing,
O what a Saviour is mine!

2 Light s my burden and glad is my soul,
Bright is the path that I trace,
As onward I go t’ward the heavenly goal,
Praising His marvelous grace. [Refrain]

3 Thou who art weary and sin-sick and sad,
Come to my Saviour today,
And thou shalt be sinless, triumphant and glad,
Singing His praises alway. [Refrain]
