Representative Text

1 I have a Saviour, a wonderful friend,
And on His love I can always depend;
Goodness and mercy my pathway attend,
For I am sure of His love.

Refrain:
Yes, I am sure of His love,
Yes, of my Saviour above;
He will be near to encourage or cheer;
Yes, I am sure of His love.

2 He has come down from His kingdom on high,
Suffered and died, my great need to supply;
So, on my friend to the end I’ll rely,
For I am sure of His love. [Refrain]

3 He will uphold me, when trials betide,
Safe from the tempter my soul He will hide;
Straight to the city, I know He will guide,
For I am sure of His love. [Refrain]
