3151. I Was Poorer Than All

1. I was poorer than all,
I was hungry and cold,
I was far, far away
from the dear Shepherd’s fold;
But Jesus now gives me
of His riches untold,
Oh, the peace of my soul is Jesus!

Refrain
I was poorer than all;
now I’ve riches to spare,
And a home He is building
for me so bright and fair;
And some day I am going
to my home over there,
Oh, the peace of my soul is Jesus!

2. I was poorer than all,
I was friendless, alone,
I was still in my sins,
and my heart was a stone;
But Jesus smiled on me
and said, Thou art My own,
Oh, the peace of my soul is Jesus! [Refrain]

3. I was poorer than all,
I was ready to die,
But the Savior came down
from His throne in the sky;
On Calv’ry He ransomed
such a sinner as I,
Oh, the peace of my soul is Jesus! [Refrain]

4. I was poorer than all
till the Lord said to me,
Go in peace, sin no more;
now I’m happy and free,
And ever I’ll praise Him,
and His child I will be.
Oh, the peace of my soul is Jesus! [Refrain]
