Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Sing with tuneful lay

Full Text

1 Sing with tuneful lay,
Jesus is the Way
To the golden strand
Of the happy land.
I can never stray
From that pleasant way,
While I faithful stand,
Holding to His hand.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

I am in the way,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Jesus saves today.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
I am in the way,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Jesus saves today!

2 In the days of youth,
Jesus is my Truth!
Foll’wing by His side,
He shall be my Guide;
By the waters sheen,
Into pastures green,
Manna unforeseen,
Daily He’ll provide.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! [Chorus]

3 In the shades of night,
He will be my Light,
He will vigil keep
O’er me while asleep;
Then when 'peeps o' day',
rounding pillows play,
Ever will I pray
Truth to Light my Way.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! [Chorus]
