Praise God, I’ve found the way, Jesus is mine;
He keeps me every day, Jesus is mine;
I was away from home, and loved afar to roam,
But Jesus bid me come, Jesus is mine.

Earth’s pleasures all alloy, Jesus is mine;
Here, here is peace and joy, Jesus is mine;
Tho’ earth is bright and fair, brighter my home up there,
Undimmed by dark despair, Jesus is mine.

Earth’s gains I count but dross, Jesus is mine;
In clinging to the cross, Jesus is mine;
Let death’s unyielding wave lay me within the grave,
Jesus, my Lord, can save, Jesus is mine.
