1 My Jesus died for me upon the cross,
There for Him I’ve counted all but loss;
When my soul beheld Him on the tree,
Conscience said His dying was for me:
All my heart was captured by His love,
Filled with glory streaming from above.
Jesus’ love has won my heart,
Jesus now is all to me;
For His love all else depart,
Only Jesus ’bide with me.
2 The world is rushing heedless down to woe,
Selling hopes of heaven for a show,
But my soul is happy in the Lord,
Feasting daily on His living word;
Walking with my Jesus, oh, how sweet!
Far above the world in love complete. [Refrain]
3 From all my sin the blood has set me free,
And my life is constant joy to me;
Heaven’s glory shines upon my way,
All my sky is bright and cloudless day,
Glory, glory, glory unto God,
Who redeemed us by the precious blood. [Refrain]
