Representative Text

1 In land or store I may be poor;
My place unknown, my name obscure;
Of this I have the witness sure;
O bless the Lord, I’ve Jesus!

What tho’ the world its gifts deny,
I’ve riches more than gold can buy—
The key to treasures in the sky!
O bless the Lord, I’ve Jesus!

2 On life’s rough sea how frail my bark!
But in the storm and densest dark
I have a safe and trusted Ark;
O bless the Lord, ‘tis Jesus! [Refrain]

3 When shadows deep around me fall,
And gloom and fear my soul enthrall,
There is an arm beneath them all;
O bless the Lord, ‘tis Jesus! [Refrain]

4 Soon will this fleeting life be o’er;
O then, upon the other shore
I’ll be with him forevermore,
Forevermore with Jesus. [Refrain]
