Representative Text

1 I love the story of the cross,
That tells of Him who died for me;
I’m counting everything but dross,
His humble, faithful child to be.

Then on I’ll press, the prize to win;
I’ll walk with Him alone,
And labor in this world of sin,
Till He shall call me home.

2 He called me from the paths of wrong,
He filled my troubled soul with peace;
I love to speak His name in song,
My praise to Him shall never cease. [Refrain]

3 My unsaved friend, O! hear His voice,
And trust your soul to Him alone;
Make Him your everlasting choice,
And He will lead you safely home. [Refrain]
