1 In your Saviour abide, walk in love by His side,
Keep your feet in the beautiful, heavenly way,
Then no ill shall betide and no good be denied,
And your soul will be happy alway.

Refrain:
Trust in the Lord, and His peace-giving Word,
And from Jesus you never will stray;
Trust and obey, and forget not to pray,
And your soul will be happy in Jesus alway.

2 In the strength of His grace run the heavenly race,
And forget not to watch against sin, and to pray;
Learn His will from the Word and then follow the Lord,
And your soul will be happy alway. [Refrain]

3 As you journey along let your courage be strong,
And your faith fixed on Jesus each step of the way;
Have His love in your heart, walk from evil apart,
And your soul will be happy alway. [Refrain]
