Representative Text

1 I know on Whom my faith is fixed,
I know in Whom I trust;
I know that Christ abides in me,
And all His ways are just.

I know on whom my faith is fixed,
His mercy has set me free;
I know that He will safely keep,
And His love is sweet to me.

2 Let scoffers scoff, let scorners sneer,
My heart is full of peace;
They cannot take the joy I feel,
Nor make my hope to cease. [Refrain]

3 They cannot quench the fire of love,
That burns within my breast;
Nor break that tender fellowship
That makes my life so blest. [Refrain]

4 They cannot bring again the sins,
The blood has washed away;
Nor make my heart like stone once more,
Nor turn to night my day. [Refrain]

5 I know God is, I know His Word
Unfailing meets each test;
I calmly face a hostile world
With soul and mind at rest. [Refrain]
