Representative Text

1 I have learned the sweetest song,
Ever breathed by mortal tongue;
And my heart has sung it long,
Precious Jesus!
Oh, the well of joy that springs,
And the constant peace it brings;
While my heart with rapture sings,
Precious Jesus!

Precious Jesus!
Precious Jesus!
How my heart with rapture sings,
Precious Jesus!

2 Tho’ the storms of sorrow fall,
While His mercy I recall,
I can sing above them all,
Precious Jesus!
IN the deepest shades of night,
Still my soul is full of light;
With His presence all is bright,
Precious Jesus!

Precious Jesus!
Precious Jesus!
With His presence all is bright,
Precious Jesus!

3 When I reach the glory land,
And before His throne I stand,
I will sing with harp in hand,
Precious Jesus!
When His face I there shall see,
And His welcome smile to me;
Still my sweetest song will be,
Precious Jesus

Precious Jesus!
Precious Jesus!
Still my sweetest song will be,
Precious Jesus!
