1 A sinner, I came, for my Lord to see,
Hallelujah, bless His name!
He knew me at once and abode with me,
Hallelujah, bless His name!

Hallelujah, oh, the glory!
Jesus loves me, this I know;
For I feel the blessed pardon
That our Saviour did bestow.

2 I knew that the Lord would not pass me by,
Hallelujah, bless His name!
He knows ev’ry heart, and He heard my cry,
Hallelujah, bless His name! [Refrain]

3 Oh, the rapture I felt I can never tell,
Hallelujah, bless His name!
For the great relief when my burden fell,
Hallelujah, bless His name! [Refrain]

4 I’ll watch, for today yet the Lord may come,
Hallelujah, bless His name!
To grant me the joy of His happy home,
Hallelujah, bless His name! [Refrain]
