I will live for my Re­deem­er—
Once He lived on earth for me;
And He lives for me in glo­ry,
Pleased my faith­ful toil to see.


I will trust my dear Re­deem­er;
I will love Him more and more;
I will fol­low till I meet Him
On yon fair, eter­nal shore.

I will walk with my Re­deem­er,
With Him bear and suf­fer pain;
That I may re­ceive the pro­mise:
With Him on His throne to reign.


I will work for my Re­deem­er—
Once He toiled on earth for me;
And for Him in faith­ful labor,
Day by day I long to be.
