Representative Text

1 Jesus came and sought me,
Into life He brought me,
Taught my grateful heart to sing
The glad new song;
Praise and glory giving
Christ, the ever living,
Praise to Him whose mercy leads me
All along.

All along,
All along;
Though I wander through the desert,
Praise the Lord;
Still the cloud is o’er me,
Going on before me;
Step by step the light I follow;
Praise the Lord.

2 By His love attended,
By His grace defended,
Every day He crowneth me
With joy and song;
Should the way be dreary,
I can never weary,
Trusting Him who gently leads me
All along. [Refrain]

3 When the shadows gather
O’er the lonely river,
When I hear the echo
Of the angels’ song,—
Sweet will be the morning,
Eden’s land adorning;
Sweeter far the love that led me
All along. [Refrain]
