The service of Jesus true pleasure affords, In Him there is joy without an alloy; ’Tis heaven to trust Him and rest on His words; It pays to serve Jesus each day.Refrain: It pays to serve Jesus, it pays ev’ry day, It pays ev’ry step of the Though the pathway to glory may sometimes be drear, You’ll be happy each step of the way.2. It pays to serve Jesus whate’er may betide, It pays to be true whate’er you may do; ’Tis riches of mercy in Him to abide; It pays to serve Jesus each day. 3. Though sometimes the shadows may hang o’er the way, And sorrows may come to beckon us home, Our precious Redeemer each toil will repay; It pays to serve Jesus each day.
