I shall go to live with Je­sus,
Who for me His love has shown;
Not my will, but Thine be done, Lord,
Thus for me He prayed alone.


Some glad day I’ll rise to meet Him
On that bright celestial shore;
There I’ll sing His praise for­ev­er,
And His smiling face adore.

Oh, I love to tell the story,
How He bled and died for me;
While vile sinners even mocked Him,
As He groaned upon the tree.


’Tis so sweet for me to trust Him,
He has done so much for me;
I shall ne­ver cease to praise Him,
Since from sin He set me free.
