Representative Text

1 I will live for my Redeemer—
Once He lived on earth for me;
And He lives for me in glory,
Pleased my faithful toil to see.

I will trust my dear Redeemer;
I will love Him more and more;
I will follow till I meet Him
On yon fair, eternal shore.

2 I will walk with my Redeemer,
With Him bear and suffer pain;
That I may receive the promise:
With Him on His throne to reign. [Refrain]

3 I will work for my Redeemer—
Once He toiled on earth for me;
And for Him in faithful labor,
Day by day I long to be. [Refrain]
