Living for Jesus

Living for Jesus a life that is true,
striving to please him in all that I do,
yielding allegiance glad hearted and free
this is the pathway of blessing for me.

Notes

LIVING FOR JESUS is a gospel hymn tune distinguishable by its dactylic rhythm for the stanzas and its straightforward iambic refrain. The guitar chords avoid some of the chromaticism of the original harmony; when using guitar, do not use keyboard. Singing the refrain only once–at the end of stanza 3–will constitute a fine climax. Singers may want to observe a ritardando or a fermata in the final phrase of the refrain. C. Harold Lowden (b. Burlington, NJ, 1883; d. Collingwood, NJ, 1963) wrote his first songs when he was only twelve years old. He continued to write hymns for the rest of his life and edited a number of hymnals. A musical editor for the Evangelical and Reformed Church board, Lowden taught music at the Bible Institute of Pennsylvania (now Philadelphia College of Bible). He capped his career by serving for twenty-eight years, until his retirement in 1961, as minister of music of the Linden Baptist Church in Camden, New Jersey. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook
