Full Text

1 How blest was that life once lived upon earth,
The life of the Savior of men!
What joy was their part who learned at His feet,
Who loved and who worshiped Him then!

Refrain:
I know that He liveth, Redeemer and Friend,
To bless and to comfort our way;
I know the glad song of the heavenly throng -
He liveth, He liveth today.

2 The Friend of our need, the Hope of the world,
Abides with us still as of old;
When wandering far in sorrow and sin,
He leadeth us home to the fold. [Refrain]

3 O Lord of the sea, Who once walked abroad
On treacherous waves of the tide,
We know that Thy strong and pitying arms
Our wavering footsteps still guide. [Refrain]
