1 One is my gracious Master,
His is the name I own;
Jesus who died to save me,
Makes my glad heart his throne;
When I was lost he sought me,
And with his blood he bought me;
Gladly I give Him allegiance,
Following him alone.

Chorus:
Christ is my master, I am his servant
Following where he leads the way;
In him believing, I am receiving
Blessings of peace from day to day.
Under his wing he’ll hide me,
By the still waters guide me,
Gladly I give Him allegiance,
Following him alone.

2 One is my gracious Master,
And I will follow on,
Wherever he may lead me,
So his sweet will is done;
Strong, while in him abiding,
Safe, when in him confiding,
Gladly I give Him allegiance,
Following him alone. [Chorus]

3 One is my gracious Master;
Jesus, God’s only Son,
Sends me to represent him,
Bids me his love make known;
So I will tell his story,
Giving to him all glory;
Gladly I give Him allegiance,
Following him alone. [Chorus]
