v.1
How blessed the man who walks with God each day,
rises with Christ who is the life and way;
looking to Jesus and from self away.
Alleluia, alleluia.

v. 2
For from our birth, our sin has made legs lame,
Jesus, we need the power of Your name.
So speak and act to spread Your grace and fame.
Alleluia, alleluia.

v. 3
To know You, Father, and to know Your Son,
this is the prize, for this the wisest run.
Daily renew, this walk that we've begun.
Alleluia, alleluia.

v. 4
Great is our joy, though this is not our home,
sins are forgiven, we are not alone.
We are His temple, He the cornerstone.
Alleluia, alleluia.

v. 5
Lord Jesus Christ, to You we look and wait,
weary we grow, and dire are our straits.
But by Your name we walk and will not faint.
Alleluia, alleluia.

v. 6
Come to us, Lord, be with us is our cry.
Times of refreshing come when You draw nigh.
Restore, return, be seen by every eye.
Alleluia, alleluia.
