Representative Text

1 Yes, I commit to Jesus all
I have and hope for here below,
And trust him whatsoe’er befall,
Because I know, because I know.

Because I know his power divine
To save and keep this soul of mine;
Because I know he loves me so,
Because I know, because I know.

2 Oh, yes, I trust him for my guide,
And where he leads me I will go,
And sweetly all to him confide,
Because I know, because I know. [Refrain]

3 Yes, labor here for him is sweet:
With joy I reap, with songs I sow,
My consecration is complete,
Because I know, because I know. [Refrain]

4 Yes, I recline in pastures green,
I rest where cooling waters flow,
My days are peaceful and serene,
Because I know, because I know. [Refrain]
