1 Finding in Jesus a present help;
Looking to Jesus while passing along;
Surely, my brothers, we will sin on our way,
With life for the theme of our song.

Refrain:
There is life, life in the Son,
There is life in the crucified One;
Sing hallelujah! oh, sing hallelujah!
For there is life in the Son.

2 Clinging to Jesus in faith and love,
Having in Jesus a refuge so strong;
Surely, my brothers, we will sing and rejoice,
With life for the theme of our song. [Refrain]

3 Having in Jesus a blessed hope,
Trusting in Jesus while passing along;
Surely, my brothers, we will sing to his name,
With life for the theme of our song. [Refrain]
