Lyrics

I am learning of my Savior,
Precious lessons every hour;
How the soul, which He has ransomed,
May be kept by mighty power.

Refrain

I am learning, I am learning,
Precious truth in Jesus’ word;
I am learning, I am learning,
Of the lovely Lamb of God.

Learning more and more to love Him,
Yielding all into His will;
While a joy beyond all utterance,
Thro’ and thro’ my soul doth thrill.

Refrain

I am learning how to serve Him
With my hands, my heart, my feet;
And each day my Master’s service
To my soul becomes more sweet.

Refrain

I am learning how to trust Him
With my life and for all things;
And my soul, filled with His glory,
In exceeding gladness sings.
