1 In the light and glory of His live and story
There is ev'rything that I can need;
That is why I'm clinging and His praises singing,
As the lost to Him I lead.

Chorus:
In His sunlight, His precious sunlight,
I am always happy, yes, indeed!
In His sunlight, His precious sunlight,
There is ev'rything I need.

2 O my blessed Savior! He is mine forever,
And will be my nearest, dearest Friend;
That is why I love Him, having naught above Him,
And shall trust Him to the end. [Chorus]

3 Oh, the peace and pleasure, oh, the priceless treasure
Of the love of Him who died for me!
Thro' the day eternal, in the world supernal,
Love Divine my song shall be. [Chorus]
