Representative Text

1 I will be true to my Saviour,
Ev’ry day,
Workers He needs, who are faithful,
Who will obey;
Out in the world where the weak ones
Falter and fall in the fray,
I’ll be a hero for Christ my King,
Yes, ev’ry day.

To Christ my King, my life I’ll bring,
Ever in blessed service, a hero true;
Where’er it be, on land or sea,
I’ll be a hero for Jesus, to dare and do.

2 I’ll be a hero for Jesus,
Ev’ry day,
Using my God-given talents,
Along life’s way,
Useful in His blessed service,
That those around me may say
That I belong to the Lord and serve
His ev’ry day. [Refrain]

3 I will respond to His calling,
Ev’ry day,
Ready and willing to follow
The King alway.
With His dear hand now to lead me,
Ne’er from His side will I stray,
Following Jesus the fight I win,
Yes, ev’ry day. [Refrain]
