Praise the name of Je­sus for His ten­der care,
Watching o’er me ev­ery day;
He will bear my bur­dens, hear my fee­ble pray­er,
And will guide me when I stray.


All the way, all the way,
I will praise His name ev­ery day;
I am hap­py in my bless­èd Sav­ior’s love,
And I’m sing­ing all the way.

For my Sav­ior is my ne­ver-fail­ing friend,
Thro’ the night and thro’ the day;
On His love I know I al­ways can depend,
So I’ll praise Him ev­ery day.


Tho’ the dark’ning sha­dows round about me creep,
And the way is lone and drear:
By my Sav­ior’s side I’ll ev­er close­ly keep,
Singing hap­py songs of cheer.
