Living for Jesus day by day

Full Text

1 Living for Jesus day by day,
Following where he leads the way;
Never a choice in great or small,
Doing his will, and that is all.

Living for Jesus, peace within,
Trusting the blood that saves from sin;
Walking with him the narrow way,
Unto the gates of endless day.

2 Living for Jesus all the while,
Hiding the tears with song and smile;
Tears may be tinged with rainbow's hue,
Heavenly sunlight shining thro'. [Refrain]

3 Living for Jesus everywhere,
Sowing the seed both here and there;
Trusting that fruit will surely come,
Jesus will reap the harvest home. [Refrain]

4 Living for him in ease or pain,
Sorrow or joy, sunshine or rain,
Taking the bitter with the sweet,
Resting my soul at Jesus' feet. [Refrain]
