1. The Saviour is mine; yes, all the day long
His presence my feast, and my joy, and my song!
Then how canst thou wonder with rapture I sing,
While I dwell 'neath the shadow of Jesus' wing.
I'm washed in the purple flood,
Made clean by his precious blood,
And now I rest, I rest in Jesus' love.
2. How short are the days! the nights are sweet rest!
My cup runneth over, my manna the best;
I have not a care, but Jesus to please,--
My troubles and trials,--how light are all these!
3. But vapor the world, 'twill vanish away;
The joy of the Lord forever will stay!
And here I am building; no loss can there be,
Since Jesus my Saviour abideth with me.
