Representative Text

1 I want my life to glorify my Lord and King;
I want to please and honor Him in ev’rything;
I want my life to tell men that He is my Guide;
I want the world to know He’s walking by my side.

Refrain:
I want to live as Jesus lived,
I want to love as Jesus loved,
I want to serve and honor Him and please Him in ev’rything;
I want to live as Jesus lived,
I want to love as Jesus loved,
I want my life to testify that He’s my Lord and King.

2 Oh, that my life mighty magnify the Savior’s pow’r;
Oh, that my deeds might witness to His grace each hour;
Oh, that my words might magnify His holy name,
So let my heart and voice His mighty pow’r proclaim. [Refrain]

3 I want my life to testify that He can save;
I want to help to make Him crimson banner wave;
I want to tell the blessed story ev’ry day;
I want to be a light to others on their way. [Refrain]
