Living all for Jesus 'tis the golden way

Tune: [Living all for Jesus, 'tis the golden way]
Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Living all for Jesus, 'tis the golden way;
finding in His service gladness for the day;
Looking for His footprints, humbly walking there,
Turning ev'ry promise into trustful pray'r.

Living all for Jesus since for us He died,
Since for us He's pleading, crown'd and crucified,
Love so free and boundless wakens highest praise,
Glory to our Savior thro' eternal days.

2 Living all for Jesus in communion sweet,
Bringing ev'ry burden to His pierced feet;
Telling Him our troubles, knowing He will heed,
Finding grace to help us in our time of need. [Refrain]

3 Living all for Jesus, blessing he'll bestow,
Till His earthen vessels fill and overflow;
Yielding to His Spirit, He the work will do,
What a great salvation, wonderful and true. [Refrain]
