Representative Text

1 All my life the Lord hath led me;
All my life his loving care
'Midst the wilderness hath fed me;
Still his hands my ways prepare.

O the debt of love I owe him,
Debt no gold can e'er repay;
If I can but see and know him,
He my sin will wash away.

2 O how tenderly he brought me
O'er the toilsome, dangerous way;
With his own dear blood he bought me;
How can I his love repay? [Refrain]

3 As I am, O Savior, take me!
Though a sinner, save me, Lord!
Cleanse my soul from sin, and make me
Pure in spirit by thy word. [Refrain]
