The Christian

7, 7, 7, 6, 7, 7, 7, 6

Zion Songster, p. 78

E. J. King


I love my blessed Savior,

I feel I'm in his favor,

And I am his for ever,

If I but faithful prove;

And now I'm bound for Canaan,

I feel my sins forgiven,

And soon shall get to heaven,

To sing redeeming love.


Poor sinners may deride me,

And unbelievers chide me,

But nothing shall divide me

From Jesus, my best friend.

Supported by his power,

I long to see the hour

That bids my spirit tower,

And all my troubles end.


The pleasing time is hastening,

My tottering frame is wasting

While I'm engaged in praising,

Impelled by his love.

When yonder shining orders,

Who sing on Canaan's borders,

Shall bear me to the Lord there

To praise his name above.
