1 There was a time when I believed true pleasure could be found
By living only in a life of sin,
But since I’ve come to Jesus I have learn’d true joys abound,
With those alone who have His peace within.

Refrain:
Better, yes, it’s better ev’ry day,
Brighter, ever brighter, grows the way;
Jesus’ love is sweeter now than e’er it was before,
Praise the Lord, it’s getting better ev’ry day.

2 I used to think that I could not give up my life of sin,
I said, “Too narrow is the upward way,”
But tho’ I find it sometimes steep, yet Jesus leads me on,
And, praise the Lord, it’s better ev’ry day. [Refrain]

3 And so I’m pressing onward to my mansion in the sky,
Rejoicing in my Saviour all the way.
And on my pilgrim journey, as each milestone I pass by,
My glad heart sings, “It’s better ev’ry day.” [Refrain]
