Representative Text

1. If my heart is the Lord’s
All His works I shall do;
In my life I will show
That to Him I am true.

Doing His will I never shall stray
Far from the beautiful path away.

2. If I keep in the way
Where He bids me abide,
I shall be safe from harm
With my Lord close allied. [Refrain]

3. He will guide me in peace,
Be my stay and my shield,
And no foes shall prevail
While He owns me His child. [Refrain]

4. Thro’ the years of my life
His exceeding reward
Shall be mine, till the end
Purest bliss shall afford. [Refrain]
