1940. Gone from My Heart

1. Gone from my heart the world and all its charms;
Now through the blood I’m saved from all alarms;
Down at the cross my heart is bending low;
The precious blood of Jesus cleanses white as snow.

I love Him, I love him,
Because He first loved me,
And purchased my salvation
On Calv’ry’s tree.

2. Once I was lost, and way down deep in sin;
Once was a slave to passions fierce within;
Once was afraid to meet an angry God
But now I’m cleansed from ev’ry stain through Jesus’ blood. [Refrain]

3. Once I was bound, but now I am set free;
Once I was blind, but now the light I see;
Once I was dead, but now in Christ I live,
To tell the world around the peace that He doth give. [Refrain]
