I knew my Lord Jesus (Bridget O’Malley – 3 Verses) – Clarinet and Violin

Hymn – I knew my Lord Jesus – Lyrics

Dedicated to the Church of St Andrew, Ogbourne St Andrew, Wiltshire

I knew my Lord Jesus in lands far away,
in the land of the Jordan and David’s bright throne.
My Lord he sent me to bring you the good news,
to heal and forgive wherever I roam.

I know my Lord Jesus and walk with him daily
through fields and the forest, a long way from home.
My Lord, is with me, as I speak of his love;
in God’s grace on earth, I am never alone.

So meet my Lord Jesus and walk with him gladly,
bring peace and blessings ever into your home.
Our Lord, he is with us, our friend and redeemer,
so smile now and laugh, we are never alone.
