Written By Eli G. Christy
It pays to serve Jesus, I speak from my
He’ll always be with us, if we do our part
There’s naught in this wide world can
There’s peace and contentment in serving
I love Him far better than in days of yore
I’ll serve Him more truly than ever before,
I’ll do as He bids me, whatever the cost,
I’ll be a true soldier, I’ll die at my post.
And oft when I’m tempted to turn from the
I think of my Saviour, my mind wanders
To the place where they nailed Him on
I heard a voice saying, “I suffered for thee.”
A place I remember where I was set free,
‘Twas where I found pardon, a heaven to
There Jesus spoke sweetly to my weary soul,
My sins were forgiven, He made my heart
How rich is the blessing the world cannot
I’m satisfied fully for Jesus to live;
Though friends may forsake me and trial
I am trusting Jesus, His love never dies.
There is no one like Jesus can cheer me
His love and His kindness can ne’er fade
In winter and summer, in sunshine and
His love and affection are always the same.
Will you have this blessing that Jesus
A free full salvation from sin’s bitter throes?
O come to the Saviour, to Calvary flee,
The fountain is opened, is flowing for thee.
