Representative Text

1 No one can tell what pleasures I see,
Since I began to walk with Jesus;
My heart sings ever His love to me,
Since I began to walk with Jesus.

Refrain:
Since I began to walk with Jesus,
Since I began to walk with Jesus;
All my pathway is bright,
All my burdens are light,
Since I began to walk with Jesus.

2 No one can tell what sweet peace is mine,
Since I began to walk with Jesus;
Each load He bids me to Him resign,
Since I began to walk with Jesus. [Refrain]

3 No one can tell how I love His name,
Since I began to walk with Jesus;
Nor how I love His word to proclaim,
Since I began to walk with Jesus. [Refrain]

4 No one knows how much smoother my way,
Since I began to walk with Jesus;
Nor how much brighter I find each day,
Since I began to walk with Jesus. [Refrain]
