The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.@John 10:10

When you’re longing at heart for a leader true,
And you’re yearning to find the way,
Do you heed how the Master is calling you?
He is saying to you today:

Refrain

I am come that ye might have life,
I am come that ye might have life,
And that ye might have it more abundantly,
And that ye might have it more abundantly,
Life! Life! Life! More abundant life.

When the load of your sin on your heart weighs sore,
And in grief for its shame you fall,
Tho’ your guilt may be great, yet His grace is more,
And in love you can hear Him call:

Refrain

When the shadows shall fall, and your work is done,
Do not fear for the coming day;
With your hand close in His, greet the setting sun,
For He then to your heart will say:

Refrain
