Representative Text

1. Precious to my heart is Jesus,
As I walk with Him each day;
Sweet companionship He gives me,
All along the gladsome way.

Refrain
Precious, precious,
Precious to my heart is Jesus,
Precious, precious,
Precious to my heart is He.

2. Precious to my heart is Jesus,
In temptation’s trying hour;
With His strength to aid my weakness,
I can vanquish Satan’s power. [Refrain]

3. Precious to my heart is Jesus,
Everywhere, whate’er I do;
Faithful still, He walks beside me
All my happy journey through. [Refrain]

4. Precious to my heart is Jesus,
More and more His grace He gives;
Every day the way grows brighter,
For within my heart He lives. [Refrain]
