Representative Text

1 Take Jesus and live,
Is the burden of song
That came from the heart,
As we journey along,
Thro’ the dark vale of woe
To the city above,
Where the living may dwell
In the haven of love.

Refrain:
Take Jesus and live,
Take Jesus and live,
Is the burden of song,
As we journey along;
Take Jesus and live,
Take Jesus and live,
Is the burden of song,
As we journey along.

2 Take Jesus and live,
When thro’ shadows and gloom
We safely passed thro’,
Leading down to the tomb.
For his arm will uphold
All the weary, oppressed,
Till they enter in peace
To the mansions of rest. [Refrain]

3 Take Jesus and live,
With the beaming of light,
When darkness shall flee,
And the morn cometh bright.
When all earth’s woes are o’er,
And the sin-curse is past;
And we dwell with the pure
In life’s city at last. [Refrain]
