1 When the Lord is our treasure,
When in Him we are strong,
Ev’ry day brings its pleasure,
Ev’ry night has its song;
Trusting Him for the morrow,
Since His love will not cease;
He will waken in sorrow,
Tender carols of peace.

Refrain:
When the Lord is our treasure,
Happy praise we prolong;
Ev’ry day brings its pleasure,
Ev’ry night has its song.

2 In the life hid in Jesus,
There is purest delight;
Golden beams for the morning,
Silver stars for the night.
For His goodness and mercy—
Blessed angels are they
That shall ever attend us
When we walk in His way. [Refrain]

3 Let us give, as He giveth,
Loving words, kindly deeds;
Pass the joy to our neighbor,
Help the world in its needs.
O, for more of His Spirit,
Loving, gracious, and true,
Doing earnestly, gladly,
What our hands find to do. [Refrain]
