When Jesus first came to my heart to abide,
My sorrows like clouds rolled away;
But since He so lovingly walks by my side,
More precious is He every day!


More precious each day, hallelujah!
Each day He’s more precious to me;
This song would I sing of my Savior and King,
Each day He’s more precious to me!

He comforts my heart if in sorrow I pine,
My tears He in love wipes away;
My wonderful Savior! I know He is mine,
More precious to me every day!


If life here on earth with my Lord is so sweet,
What raptures in Heaven there’ll be!
For there will I sing with a joy so complete,
More precious is Jesus to me!
