Representative Text

1 If you will come to Jesus,
You will outshine the sun,
You will outshine the sun,
You will outshine the sun;
If you will come to Jesus,
You will outshine the sun,
And walk the golden streets on high.

2 If you keep on believing

3 If you keep on obeying

4 If you’re a smiling Christian

5 If you keep close to Jesus
