1 Life in His favor! Forgiven all sin,
Sunshine around me, and comfort within;
Sov’reign and Saviour, Redeemer and Friend,
Thee will I follow and serve to the end.
2 Life in His favor! The sentence repealed,
Pardoned the guilty, the sin-sick one healed;
Prodigal welcomed, and sonship restored,
Happy the soul in the smile of its Lord.
3 Life in His favor! All else is but vain.
Sin’s thorny pathways are sorrow and pain;
Riches and pleasure a fugitive gleam,
Honor and splendor a vanishing dream.
4 Where can be sunshine if night shroud the skies?
Darkness broods o’er me until Thou arise;
Radiance of mercy, effulgence divine,
Sun of salvation, oh, break forth and shine.
