Representative Text

1 Once my heart was dark with sadness,
Heav’nly hope destroyed by madness,
Jesus shed the light of joy and gladness;
Now He dwells within me night and day.

Refrain:
Walking in the sunlight with Jesus, my Jesus,
Darkness turns to daylight with Jesus, my Jesus;
He is Strength for my weakness,
Joy for my sorrow;
Safely I rest in His mighty arms:
He’s Strength for my weakness,
Joy for my sorrow;
Safely I rest in His mighty arms.

2 Wondrous joy divine! I’ve found His favor!
Christ my Joy and Crown, my Song, my Savior,
Gives His life, a life that lasts forever,
Guides and keeps securely all the way. [Refrain]

3 Richest blessings He is daily bringing;
With all needs supplied my soul keeps singing;
In my heart the bells of joy are ringing;
Guided by His hand I cannot stray. [Refrain]
