Lyrics

Is your life fully yielded to Jesus?
Is He King alone in your soul?
Is the government placed on His shoulder,
Not only in part, but the whole?

Do you look for His guidance in all things?
Do you trust Him with every care?
Do you keep in His presence each moment,
And always your joy with Him share?

Do you sit at His feet in the morning,
And wait ere you go on your way;
Seeking first for the strength and the wisdom,
To live to His glory all day?

Do you trust Him for victory ever,
Over self and Satan and sin?
Do you follow the sure, gentle leading
Of God’s Holy Spirit within?
