1 Jesus is my strength, my stay,
It is wonderful how he helps, wonderful how he helps!
Strengthen me from day to day,
It is wonderful how he helps on the way.

Refrain:
It is wonderful how he helps! wonderful how he helps!
It is wonderful how he helps me every day!
He is all my strength, my stay;
It is wonderful how he helps on the way!

2 When temptations vex my soul,
It is wonderful how he helps, wonderful how he helps!
When high waves of trouble roll,
It is wonderful how he helps on the way. [Refrain]

3 Be my cross now great, now small,
It is wonderful how he helps, wonderful how he helps!
Gives me strength to bear it all,
It is wonderful how he helps on the way. [Refrain]

4 Let the way be dark or bright,
It is wonderful how he helps, wonderful how he helps!
Makes my heavy burdens light,
It is wonderful how he helps on the way. [Refrain]
