Lyrics

If my heart is the Lord’s
All His works I shall do;
In my life I will show
That to Him I am true.

Refrain

Doing His will I never shall stray
Far from the beautiful path away.

If I keep in the way
Where He bids me abide,
I shall be safe from harm
With my Lord close allied.

Refrain

He will guide me in peace,
Be my stay and my shield,
And no foes shall prevail
While He owns me His child.

Refrain

Thro’ the years of my life
His exceeding reward
Shall be mine, till the end
Purest bliss shall afford.
