Representative Text

1 My Saviour guides me in the way
That leads to realms of endless day;
And tho’ His plans I cannot tell,
Yet Jesus doeth all things well.

Chorus:
O love, no mortal tongue can tell!
O love, no human power can quell!
Whate’er betide, in peace I dwell,
For Jesus doeth all things well.

2 My Saviour is my dearest friend,
And he will love me to the end;
Tho’ troubles come, in peace I dwell,
For Jesus doeth all things well. [Chorus]

3 My Saviour never leaves my side,
He knows what sorrows will betide;
And tho’ rough billows o’er me swell,
I know He doeth all things well. [Chorus]
