Hymn using same tune: #803


My song shall be of Jesus;

His mercy crowns my days,

He fills my cup with blessings,

And tunes my heart to praise.

My song shall be of Jesus,

The precious Lamb of God,

Who gave Himself my ransom,

And bought me with His blood.


My song shall be of Jesus

When, sitting at His feet,

I call to mind His goodness

In meditation sweet:

My song shall be of Jesus,

Whatever ill betide;

I'll sing the grace that saves me,

And keeps me at His side.


My song shall be of Jesus

While pressing on my way

To reach the blissful kingdom

Of pure and perfect day:

And when my soul shall enter

That realm of splendor fair,

A song of praise to Jesus

I'll sing forever there.
