Representative Text

1 To Jesus my all I resign
He changes each loss into gain;
I rest on His bosom divine
And trust Him the path to make plain.

He leads me by night and by day,
He leads me each step of the way;
Thro’ joy or thro’ sorrow right gladly I follow
Wherever He points the way.

2 I never His will would outrun,
I never would loiter behind;
But walking with God’s holy Son,
The joy of His presence I find. [Chorus]

3 What wonderful gifts are in store
For me at the end of this race;
When I, with the saints gone before,
Shall gaze on His glorified face! [Chorus]
