I love to serve my Jesus, a priv’lege so sublime, My life afresh with beauty bright is sparkling all the time; ’Mid scenes that are unfading, of rapture and of bliss, Transported, I am soaring in my Savior’s righteousness.
Refrain: I love to serve my Jesus, He’s all in all to me; He helps me bear each burden, He is my victory.
I love to serve my Jesus, the world I do give up, I’ll drink with my dear Savior from that bitter, bitter cup; I know that if I suffer with Him I, too, shall reign In life and up in glory bright—sweet promise sure I claim.
I love to serve my Jesus, and lean upon His arm In health or in affliction, in the calm or in the storm; In darkness, clouds, or sunshine, in heat or in the cold, In poverty or riches, I have peace and joy untold.
I love to serve my Jesus, for all His tender care; Oh, joy! and what a pleasure in this life we all may share; Oh, depth of great compassion! ’tis like a mighty flood, He gave His pledge of love to us, and sealed it with His blood.
