Representative Text

1 Life, light and love, the gifts of God so free,
For Jesus’ sake He gives to you and me;
And in His holy, blessed Word I see
Life, light and love in Jesus.

Refrain:
Jesus, Jesus, sing the glad refrain,
Jesus only, glory to His name!
Let ev’ry heart with rapture now proclaim,
Life, light and love in Jesus.

2 Now with my Lord I walk the upward way,
No night is there, but clear and perfect day;
There shines for me a bright and blessed ray,—
Life, light and love in Jesus. [Refrain]

3 How blest the hours spent at the mercy seat
To learn the lessons of His will so sweet,
And find, while waiting humbly at His fee,
Life, light and love in Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Come now to Christ, your Saviour true and kind,
Yield now to Him your spirit, soul and mind;
Trusting His grace and mercy, you shall find
Life, light and love in Jesus. [Refrain]
