1 Oh, the joy of fellowship with Jesus,
Sitting at His feet each day!
Hand in hand with Christ, the loving Savior,
Walking all along life’s way!

Oh, the joy of fellowship with Jesus,
Close beside Him all the way!
Oh, the joy of fellowship with Jesus,
Hand in hand with Him each day!

2 Waiting for the word of cheer He giveth,
Gaining inspiration new,
Strength to carry on the Father’s business,,
Learning well His work to do. [Refrain]

3 Oh, the joy of fellowship with Jesus!
Mind and soul and heart and will,
Given to the Lord in full surrender,
With His blessed love to fill! [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
