Description: This was originally composed (verse 1 and refrain) for an Authorised Lay Ministry course in 2011 as an exploration of more contemporary music styles in modern church worship. It was update with verse 2 in 2012, then later edited and published 2014. It is intended to be sung in a loose, swinging style and note perfection in performance is not essential, the most important thing is to sing with joy and energy!

Original text and translations
1. I am living in the love of God,
Every day he is with me,
As I walk along the path of God,
And he shows me the way.
When I feel life a struggle
Or my load hard to bear,
When I need new direction
He is there.
Refrain: Through the good, through the bad,
I can always feel him near me,
In his Word and his love
I will have security,
As I carry on life's journey
His light shines so I can see
How to live my life so he can live through me.
2. I am working in the name of God,
In his word and his wisdom,
I am singing of the love of God,
Love for you, love for me.
In that love that unites us,
Makes us strong, sets us free,
We will be his eternal family.
