Representative Text

1 I have something to impart, Saviour dear,
There’s singing in my heart none can hear;
And the reason I will tell,
It’s because I love Thee well,
And will with Thee ever dwell, Saviour dear.

Live with me, Saviour dear,
Saviour dear, live with me,
Not because great earthly gains I would see,
But I would be pure in heart,
And would know Thee as Thou art,
Wilt Thou not this boon impart, Saviour dear?

2 Not alone do I love Thee, Saviour dear,
I know Thou lovest me, I’ve no fear;
So my life is full of spring,
In my heart the joybells ring,
And I will Thy praises sing, Saviour dear. [Refrain]

3 Thou art all in all to me, Saviour dear,
None can compare with Thee, stay Thou near;
I’ve no fears when Thou art nigh,
Not a sorrow, nor a sigh,
But Thy smile can bid it fly, Saviour dear. [Refrain]

4 I will praise Thee while I live, Saviour dear,
For none like Thee can give words of cheer;
Fold me to Thy loving breast,
There’s no other spot so blest,
There I would forever rest, Saviour dear. [Refrain]

Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill. However, Mr. Oatman only serves as a local preacher. For many years he was engaged with his father in the mercantile business at Lumberton… Go to person page >
