Representative Text

1 I would be faithful to Jesus each day,
Fearless and faithful each step of the way,
Earnestly serve Him, if only I may;
I would be faithful to Jesus.

I would be faithful,
Faithful to Jesus;
Loyal and faithful,
I would be faithful to Jesus.

2 I would be faithful wherever I go,
Singing His praises with love all aglow,
Tho’ called to follow where I may now know;
I would be faithful to Jesus. [Refrain]

3 I would be faithful and trusting and true,
The work He assigns me I gladly will do,
For He has promised His grace to renew;
I would be faithful to Jesus. [Refrain]
