There is one whom I love

Representative Text

1. There is One whom I love,
Who has placed me here,
That for Him I might sing
Words of love and cheer.
May I then faithful be
To the work thus giv'n,
And of Him be approved,
Thus to taste of heav'n"
And of Him be approved,
Thus to taste of heav'n.

2. Since His will is revealed
In His written Word,
He commands that I walk
With my loving Lord.
O may I faithful be
To His Word alway,
Walk with Him, trusting Him
Thro' the night and day;
Walk with Him, trusting Him
Thro' the night and day;

3. Then will I do His will
As to me revealed,
Nor to doubt nor despair
Shall I ever yield,
But to Him ever go,
Should I be distrest,
Knowing well I shall find
Comfort there and rest;
Knowing well I shall find
Comfort there and rest.
