Representative Text

1 My life is full of glory, each duty from above,
He gives me from His storehouse of everlasting love;
I fear not when He bids me go and with my mouth confess,
For I am trusting not in self,
But in His righteousness.

My life is full of glory,
That passeth not away,
The sunshine of His precious love,
Grows brighter day by day;
My soul shall ever own Him,
My heart shall ever sing,
For all is full of Glory,
Since Jesus is my King.

2 My life is full of glory, since Jesus came to me,
And now I tell the story of grace so full and free;
For in each trial He comforts me, in sorrow and in woe,
He walks beside me in the way
That He would have me go. [Refrain]

3 My life is full of glory, and Jesus longs to be,
An everlasting portion, to you as well as me;
He bids you rise and follow Him, from sorrow unto joy,
And thou shalt find a blessedness
Which nothing can destroy. [Refrain]
