Representative Text

1 I’m glad when in the Blessed Book
My Lord I see,
The Friend of all that need His help,
For that means me.

For that means me!
For that means me!
Christ has bidden all to come,
And that means me.

2 I’m glad He calls, as once He called,
By Galilee,
To all who will to follow Him,
For that means me. [Refrain]

3 I’m glad that by the Father’s throne
He makes His plea,
For those who ask for pardon sweet,
For that means me. [Refrain]

4 I’m glad He says that all His own
At last shall be
With Him in glory up above,
For that means me. [Refrain]
