Representative Text

1 Love keeps me singing, along the rough road,
Praises to Jesus, my Saviour and Lord;
My heart is as free as a bird on the wing,
How can I help singing the praise of my King?

Refrain:
Love keeps me singing, the love of my Lord;
Love makes me happy, O glory to God!
My heart is as free as a bird on the wing,
For love keeps me singing the praise of my King.

2 Love keep me happy from morning till night,
Love changes darkness to glorious light;
The love of my Saviour removes all my fear;
When hardest my trials, his love brings me cheer. [Refrain]

3 Love keeps me working all through the long day,
Hardship is pleasure when love fills the way;
The toil that he gives me how gladly I do,
His love is the power my strength to renew. [Refrain]
