Refrain:
Sweet Jesus, Sweet Jesus:
He's the lily of the valley, the bright and morning star.
Sweet Jesus, Sweet Jesus:
He's the fairest of ten thousand, praise His name!

1 One day as I was walkin',
I heard a voice from up above:
It filled my soul with gladness,
and filled my heart with love. [Refrain]

2 I took my gospel trumpet,
and I began to blow,
And if my Savior's with me,
I'll blow wherever I go. [Refrain]

3 One day as I was walkin'
along the heavenly road,
My Savior spoke unto me,
And filled my heart with love. [Refrain]

4 O don't you be discouraged,
for Jesus is your friend:
He'll fill your heart with gladness;
On Him you can depend. [Refrain]
