1 I am clinging to Jesus, my wonderful friend,
Who has promised to guide even unto the end;
He will keep me, I know, always happy and free,
And will always be growing more precious to me.

Refrain:
He will always be precious to me,
He will always be precious to me;
More and more I will cling,
More and more work and sing,
He will always be precious to me.

2 I will sing of His mercy and glorious love,
Till I praise and adore Him with angels above;
And the world my great love for my Savior shall see,
He will always be growing more precious to me. [Refrain]

3 In that beautiful country of love and delight,
Where the crown will be given when faith ends in sight;
In my mansion of glory and rest by the sea
He will always be growing more precious to me. [Refrain]
