1 ‘Tis joy to go where Jesus leads,
His voice divine to hear,
His constant care supplies our needs,
His daily mercies cheer;
What blessings bright our path attend,
With Him for Helper, Comrade, Friend.

‘Tis joy to walk with Him,
His heav’nly strength upholding,
‘Tis joy that naught can dim,
To follow in His way,
‘Tis joy to trust in Him,
His changeless love enfolding,
His voice to hear, our hearts to cheer,
And follow Him for aye.

2 ‘Tis joy to dwell in Jesus’ care,
His presence brings us peace,
Our ev’ry burden He will bear,
He bids our doubtings cease;
His pow’r and might shall e’er defend,
He is our Helper, Comrade, Friend. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis joy to trust in Jesus’ love,
Unfathomed, deep and wide,
‘Tis higher than the heights above,
And changeless shall abide;
He keeps us ‘til our journey’s end,
He is our Helper, Comrade, Friend. [Refrain]
