8. Jesus of Nazareth Passed my Way

1 Jesus of Nazareth passed my way,
My heart is filled with singing,
My darkness has turned to day,
New life and gladness bringing;
My garments, soiled and stained with sin,
I cast aside, unheeding,
He clad me in his raiment clean,
In answer to my pleading.

Refrain:
Jesus of Nazareth passed my way,
Redeemed me by his pow’r;
Oh, hear the cry, “he passeth by,”
Give him thy heart this hour.

2 Jesus of Nazareth passed my way,
He gave me sight for blindness,
Tormenting doubts he did allay
With words of heav’nly kindness;
Within my heart he woke a song,
He taught my lips to praise him,
Although temptations ’round me throng
My grateful heart obeys him. [Refrain]

3 Jesus of Nazareth passed my way,
Oh, precious is the story!
I’ll sing it through life’s little day,
And chant it up in glory;
The Great Physician made me whole,
Redeemed my life from sadness,
And while eternal years shall roll
I’ll sing this song of gladness. [Refrain]
