1 I am living in peace and contentment of soul,
Since I gave up the world for Jesus;
All my trials and burdens on Him now I roll,
Since I gave up the world for Him.

Refrain:
Sweet peace fills my soul since He took control,
And I gave up the world for Jesus,
He has cleans’d me from sin, and I’m on my way home,
Since I gave up the world for Jesus.

2 I am feeding on manna He daily provides,
Since I gave up the world for Jesus;
And by still flowing waters my footsteps He guides,
Since I gave up the world for Him. [Refrain]

3 O I love to walk with Him, as friend walks with friend,
Since I gave up the world for Jesus;
And the hours are so blissful that with Him I spend,
Since I gave up the world for Him. [Refrain]

4 I’ve a foretaste of joy that in heaven they know,
Since I gave up the world for Jesus;
And it brightens my pathway as homeward I go,
Since I gave up the world for Him. [Refrain]
