I have given up all to my Savior so dear,
And His praises I ever will sing;
And though all of this world should forsake me while here,
To my Savior I ever will cling.
He leads me each day in the heavenly way,
So onward and upward Iíll climb;
In the straight, narrow way, Iím determined to stay,
Till I leave this old dark world behind.
Iíve received such great light, and its beams are so bright,
That the past of my lifeís way seems dim;
I will walk in this light by day and by night,
Still closer Iíll cling unto Him.
Some think Iíve done wrong by leaving the throng,
Who abide in sectarian strife;
But Iíve only come back where Godís people belong,
From Babel I fled for my life.
I have a good home in the fold of my Lord,
Where His sanctified children all dwell;
I am glad that I heard the truth from His word,
And now with my soul all is well.
Someday when my life and its labors are oíer,
And my sheaves at His feet I lay down,
I will meet all the saints on that beautiful shore,
And receive a bright, glittering crown.
