Representative Text

WITH my heart so bright in the heavenly light,
I live with Jesus all the time;
And I know I am washed in his blood quite white,
And I am his and he is mine.

Refrain:
My soul is full of Joy the devil can’t destroy,
I’m serving such a mighty, mighty King;
And it doesn’t matter now
What the world may do or vow,
While Jesus is my Saviour I can sing.
I’ve joined the Army of the Lord,
Fighting for the King of kings;
And it doesn’t matter now
What the world may do or vow,
While Jesus is my Saviour I can sing.

2 When my heart was dark, and my soul was lost,
My Jesus spoke a pardon free;
And he stilled by his power the ocean that tossed
And bade me go and happy be.

3 By his death he bought me everlasting life,
By his stripes my soul was healed;
And for my transgression he has borne the strife,
And by his sorrow joy revealed.
