I love God's way of living, best of all
So proud when He called me
Gonna keep me out'a jail
He will save my soul from Hell

VERSE 2
O, I love God's way of living, best of all
I lay on th sea of death
Drifting downward to distress
Thought I didn't need Jesus in my soul
I could there to leave my spite
I thought that I was satisfied
Praise His holy name
He found me an' He saved my soul

An' I'm so thankful I accept Him, when He called
He will keep me out'a jail
He will save my soul from Hell
O, I love livin', best of all

VERSE 4
Many times I've gone in doubt
For drinks, I couldn't quit
An' ole Satan --- ---, to break th law
To my little home I part
Broke my Dad an' Mother's heart
O, I love wayup living, best of all

VERSE 5
Th world, th richest writer, so th Lord
For this would dwell away
--- --- -- way
An' temptaion from th way
I love God's way of living, best of all
