ALLELUIA BE OUR SONG
No matter how far I may travel
Over land or sea or air
There is no distance can separate me
From God's eternal loving care.
If I were thrown for a loss
Every day for the rest of my life
Thy solace and peace I gladly confess
Would give succor for the struggle and strife.
O faint heart be thou not weary
Of the cross you're requested to bear
Just remember the life of the master
And the cross he was willing to share.
Let no sad songs come from our lips
No dirges be sing to the throng
But glory be to the Lord of our life
And alleluia, alleluia, be our song.
