I’ll sing for Je­sus while I’ve breath,
I’ll praise Him when I die;
His lov­ing­kind­ness af­ter death,
I’ll her­ald to the sky.


Sweet Sav­ior mine,
I’ll sing of Thy won­drous love,
I’ll serve Thee still,
And I’ll praise Thee up ab­ove.

When sink­ing un­der sin and grief,
No oth­er help was nigh;
’Twas Je­sus came to my re­lief,
’Twas He who heard my cry.


My trou­bled soul found sweet re­pose,
While trust­ing in His blood,
And from the depths of sin arose,
To dwell with Christ in God.
