What Shall I Do With The Lords Commands


What shall I do with the Lord’s commands?
What shall I do with each precious word?
How shall I keep them all safe within,
Wonderful things which my ears have heard?

Chorus:
Write them upon the heart,
Let them be written in fadeless lines;
Treasure them deep in the inward part,
There where the lamp of mem’ry shines.

How shall I show to the world around
That I remember and understand
All that the Master has given me,
Precept and promise, and each command? [Chorus]

When I remember the royal words,
Lessons and promises, sweet and dear,
Let me be ready, with willing hands,
Daily to serve him with holy fear. [Chorus]
