Representative Text

1 I have found the Saviour precious, he is all in all tome,
From all idols he has won my heart away;
I’m rejoicing in the power that from sin has made me free,
And I know I love him better ev’ry day.

Refrain:
I know I love him better ev’ry day.
I know I love him better ev’ry day.
I’m rejoicing in the power that from sin has made me free,
And I know I love him better ev’ry day.

2 Earthly friends may soon forget me, earthly treasures will grow dim,
But the friendship of my Saviour is for aye;
Ev’ry need for ev’ry moment I am sure to find in him
And I know I love him better ev’ry day. [Refrain]

3 Earth recedes and heav’n draws nearer; deeper, richer seems his grace,
As he daily walks beside me in the way;
Tho’ a vail may hide the glory of my Saviour’s blessed face
Still I know I love him better ev’ry day. [Refrain]
