Lyrics

I will sing all day of the Savior’s love,
That once brought Him down from His home above;
All my sins He pardoned and set me free;
Soon He’ll take me home with Himself to be.

Refrain

Oh, the joy I feel, as I humbly kneel,
At the Savior’s feet, in communion sweet!
He has cleansed my soul from its guilt and sin;
Glory be to God! there is peace within.

Oh, the day will come when we all shall stand,
At the throne of God as a blood-washed band;
What a bliss ’twill be our dear Lord to see,
And to sing His praise thro’ eternity.

Refrain

Will you come, dear friend? Give the Lord your heart,
Ere His Spirit grieved from your soul depart;
There are crowns in glory awaiting those
Who in Christ the Savior their trust repose.
