Representative Text

1. My soul is joyful in the Lord;
His light shines all around;
For Jesus is my life, my way;
His love in me abounds.

I am walking, walking in the light,
The truth, the light, the way;
I am walking, walking in the light,
The beautiful light of God today.

2. His blood has cleansed me from all sin;
I’m every whit made whole;
And life and light shine now within,
And glory fills my soul. [Refrain]

3. My life is hid with Christ in God;
My bread is in His Word;
My meat and drink His righteousness,
In Him I live and move. [Refrain]

4. I care not for this world below;
It has no charms I love;
I live by faith and faith alone;
I seek a home above. [Refrain]
