Representative Text

1. ’Tis not far to Jesus,
He is everywhere,
Watching o’er His children
With a tender care.

Refrain
Early if we seek Him,
Early we shall find Him;
’Tis not far to Jesus,
He is everywhere.

2. ’Tis not far to Jesus,
No, ’tis very near;
He is all around us,
He is with us here. [Refrain]

3. If we want to love Him
Let us go and pray;
Then our hearts can find Him,
Now, this very day. [Refrain]
