Lyrics

When Jesus first came to my heart to abide,
My sorrows like clouds rolled away;
But since He so lovingly walks by my side,
More precious is He every day!

Refrain

More precious each day, hallelujah!
Each day He’s more precious to me;
This song would I sing of my Savior and King,
Each day He’s more precious to me!

He comforts my heart if in sorrow I pine,
My tears He in love wipes away;
My wonderful Savior! I know He is mine,
More precious to me every day!

Refrain

If life here on earth with my Lord is so sweet,
What raptures in Heaven there’ll be!
For there will I sing with a joy so complete,
More precious is Jesus to me!

Refrain
