Representative Text

1 I’ve a wonderful message so blessed and true,
My life doth its fullness unfold;
‘Tis a message of love from the Father above,
More precious than silver or gold.

Refrain:
This wonderful message so full and so free,
My life in its fullness enfolds;
‘Tis love, wondrous love, from the Father above,
More precious than silver or gold.

2 I’ve a deep-settled peace which abideth within,
It flows like a river so strong;
Tho’ life’s billows may roll, naught can trouble my soul,
For Christ is my joy and my song. [Refrain]

3 I’ve a sweet and wonderful Joy in my soul,
He watches and guards me each day;
And the light of His love drives away ev’ry fear,
As with Him I walk in the way. [Refrain]
