Representative Text

1 How precious the promise I read in the word,
Of Jesus, my Saviour, to me,
That when I have finished the work that He gave,
My home in His kingdom shall be.

And when in the glory I look on His face,
With rapture that cannot be told;
The wonderful story of grace and of glory
Will never, no, never grow old.

2 O what are the sorrows and trials of earth,
Compared with the bliss I shall know
With Him, my Redeemer, where rivers of joy
Forever and ever shall flow? [Refrain]

3 Thus far on my journey by faith I have come,
And Jesus abides with me still;
And O what a lesson from Him I have learned,
Of trusting, and doing His will. [Refrain]
