I sought it in the avenues of selfishness and greed.
I looked for it both night and day, but never saw my need.
I searched in vain for happiness and peace;
And nothing came but emptiness—frustration never ceased.
Then one day I discovered HIM, and life became a song.
Now He lives in me, and strengthens me whenever days are long.
Just lean on HIM, have faith in HIM, in Jesus now confide.
He will walk with you, and talk with you, and continue by your side!
Refrain: This Jesus of Nazareth gives peace, and a song.
Forever I’ll depend on HIM—He helps me to be strong.
I know my Savior leads the way, so what do you say?
Let’s join with HIM, and trust in HIM for victory today!
