Representative Text

1 I am happy in the Lord,
Sweetly trusting in His word;
And I know the wondrous joy of sins forgiv’n,
For I’ve found a resting place,
In the fullness of His grace,
So that ev’ry moment brings me nearer heav’n.

Jesus, Jesus, blessed Jesus,
Keep me ever a child of Thine;
Jesus, Jesus, blessed Jesus,
Keep me faithful by grace divine.

2 Just to know and do His will
Just to listen and be still;
Is a blessing that the world may never find,
Where He sends ‘tis joy to go,
For rich blessings overflow,
In the service of the Master ever kind. [Refrain]

3 In His presence I am blest,
In the sweetness of His rest,
There is nothing I for Him would not endure,
For His goodness will sustain
Ev’ry hour of grief or pain,
And the promise of His word I know is sure. [Refrain]
