1 I strive to walk the narrow way,
To live near Jesus ev’ry day;
To Him each trying hour I pray
For saving, keeping grace.

O what wonderful grace!
O what wonderful grace!
For my ev’ry need I see
There’s grace enough for me.

2 His voice recalls my erring soul,
And yielding all to His control,
I feel His glory o’er me roll,
The glory of His grace. [Refrain]

3 I seek my Lord on bended knee,
His saving grace my only plea,
And then, thro’ tear-dimm’d eyes I see
The glory of His face. [Refrain]
