1 Since Jesus made my heart his home,
I’m happy all the day, happy all the day;
Where’er it is my lot to roam,
I’m happy all the day, happy all the day.

Refrain:
I’m happy all the day since the Lord has come
And made my heart his abiding home;
And now I can sing all along the way,
I’m happy all the day, happy all the day.

2 His precious service is so sweet,
I’m happy all the day, happy all the day;
The joy he gives is so complete,
I’m happy all the day, happy all the day. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ loved ones turn from me away,
I’m happy all the day, happy all the day;
There’s One my friend will be for aye,
I’m happy all the day, happy all the day. [Refrain]

4 Tho’ stormy clouds o’ercast the sky,
I’m happy all the day, happy all the day;
Upon his promise I rely,
I’m happy all the day, happy all the day. [Refrain]
