418. I'm Glad I Counted the Cost

1 When first I started to seek the Lord,
I’m glad I counted the cost;
I fully measured to Jesus’ Word;
I’m glad I counted the cost.

Refrain:
I’ve paid the price and obtained the prize,
He saved my soul that was lost;
And now my treasures are in the skies,
I’m glad I counted the cost.

2 I laid my sorrows at Jesus’ feet,
I’m glad I counted the cost;
And now I’ve pleasures so pure and sweet,
I’m glad I counted the cost. [Refrain]

3 I’ve bid farewell to this world of sin,
I’m glad I counted the cost;
And now my Jesus abides within,
I’m glad I counted the cost. [Refrain]

4 I cast on Jesus my every care,
I’m glad I counted the cost;
And all my burdens He helps to bear,
I’m glad I counted the cost. [Refrain]

5 ’Twill not be long till the Lord shall come,
I’m glad I counted the cost;
And bear my soul to that heav’nly home,
I’m glad I counted the cost. [Refrain]
