Singing All the Way

Representative Text

1 'Mid innocence and joyous glee,
At dawn of life's fair day,
My loving Savior cared for me,
For this I sing today.

I'm singing, singing,
I'm singing ev'ry day;
To Him all glory be,
I'm singing all the way.

2 In tender youth ere sorrow came,
Ere tempters could betray,
I learned to love the Savior's name,
For this I sing today. [Chorus]

3 Now in the strength of manhood's pride,
When battling hosts array,
My refuge is the flowing tide,
For this I sing today. [Chorus]

4 Should age bring heavy burdens down,
To life's long, weary day,
There's rest beyond, a robe, a crown,
For this I sing today. [Chorus]
