Whate’er the road which I must tread,
Whate’er my lot may be,
One thought I never can forget—
For Jesus died for me.

Refrain

Jesus died, He died for me,
But he liveth, He liveth again,
And some day the King I’ll see
Hallelujah, amen.

When sins like mountains on me pressed,
For healing I did flee
Unto the fount of Jesus’ blood,
The blood He shed for me.

Refrain

And lo, the precious cleansing flood,
Which over me did flow,
Washed every stain from off my soul,
And made me white as snow.

Refrain

And now I walk the narrow road,
Although I cannot see,
I know by faith that I am safe,
For Jesus died for me.

Refrain
