I will early seek the Sav­ior,
I will learn of Him each day;
I will follow in His footsteps,
I will walk the narrow way.


For He loves me, yes, He loves me,
Jesus loves me, this I know.
Jesus loves me, died to save me,
This is why I love Him so.

I will hasten where He bids me,
I am not too young to go,
In the pathway where He leadeth,
Not too young His will to know.


He is standing at the doorway
Of escape from every sin;
I will knock, for He has promised,
He will hear and let me in.
