Representative Text

1 My song shall be of Jesus,
His mercy crowns my days,
He fills my cup with blessings,
And tunes my heart to praise;
My song shall be of Jesus,
The precious Lamb of God,
Who gave Himself my ransom,
And bought me with His blood.

2 My song shall be of Jesus,
When sitting at His feet,
I call to mind His goodness
And know my joy's complete;
My song shall be of Jesus,
Whatever ills befall,
I’ll sing the grace that saves me,
And triumphs over all.

3 My song shall be of Jesus,
While pressing on my way
To where my home shines glorious
In pure and perfect day.
And when my soul shall enter
The many mansions fair,
A song of praise to Jesus
I’ll sing forever there.
