Singing on My Way

Representative Text

1 Whenever ills oppress me,
When storms of sorrow roll,
There's One whose words can give me
Sweet peace within my soul;
Down at the feet of Jesus
My burdens I will lay,
And, trusting in my Savior,
Go singing on my way.

Singing ev'ry day,
Singing on my way,
And, trusting in my Savior,
Go singing on my way.

2 O what a precious Savior!
O what a Friend is mine!
How gentle is His leading,
His counsel, how divine!
His Spirit dwells within me,
For help to Him I pray,
And, trusting in my Savior,
Go singing on my way. [Refrain]

3 His wondrous love and mercy
Restored me to His fold;
Thro' faith in His salvation
I shall His face behold;
For strength for ev'ry trail
I Look to Him each day,
And, trusting in my Savior,
Go singing on my way. [Refrain]
