Representative Text

1 Oh, I am so happy all the day,
My burdens have all rolled away;
I cast all my care on Christ, my Lord,
And I’m trusting in His precious word.

I know I am His and He is mine,
My all to His care I now resign;
No foe can my peaceful spirit harm
While I lean on my dear Saviour’s arm.

2 Oh, I am so happy all the time,
Hope’s bells of joy so sweetly chime;
And goodness and mercy shall attend
All my journey to its blissful end. [Refrain]

3 Oh, I am so happy in the Lord,
He is my shield and my reward;
No valley of shadow will I fear
While my Comforter and Guide is near. [Refrain]
