I am re­joic­ing, trust­ing and hop­ing;
Looking to Je­sus, Sav­ior di­vine;
He is my re­fuge; soft­ly He whis­pers,
I have re­deemed thee, child, thou art Mine.


I am re­joic­ing, ev­er re­joic­ing,
Trusting and hop­ing all the day long;
Looking to Je­sus, on­ly to Je­sus;
He is my re­fuge, com­fort and song.

I am re­joic­ing, trust­ing and hop­ing;
He is my Sav­ior; what shall I fear?
He like a shep­herd lead­eth me gent­ly,
Close by the wa­ters flow­ing so clear.


I am re­joic­ing, trust­ing and hop­ing;
Into the man­sions wait­ing above,
Clothed in His bright­ness, He will re­ceive me,
Heir to His king­dom, child of His love.
