Lyrics

Every step with Jesus
Thus we love to go,
Down life’s shady pathway
Into evening’s glow.

Refrain

Every power for Jesus,
Brain and heart and will,
Used at highest pressure
Till the pulse be still;
Crown of glory waiting,
On the further shore,
Sing with glad rejoicing,
Praises evermore.

Every step with Jesus,
When the mornings break,
Whispering life’s secrets
E’er the road we take.

Refrain

Every nerve for Jesus,
Strained in mighty toil,
Just to bring the Master
Heaps of golden spoil.

Refrain

Every man for Jesus,
What a mighty throng,
Then would swell the chorus
Of the victor’s song!
