1 Before I found my Saviour,
I had a load of care;
No comfort in my sorrow,
No help my yoke to bear;
But now that I know Jesus,
And all my cares are gone,
My soul is fill’d with singing,
And my lips are fill’d with song.

My soul is fill’d with singing,
My days are bright with love;
I’m happy here, and waiting
For the perfect bliss above.

2 Since I have found the Saviour,
My heart is free and light;
My days no more are dreary,
No sadness comes with night;
But joy is mine unceasing,
And sunshine floods my way;
I’m on the road to heaven,
And to everlasting day. [Refrain]

3 I’m ever looking homeward,
Where perfect bliss awaits,
Where crowns await our coming,
Beyond the pearly gates;
My heart is fill’d with longing
To pass those portals fair,
And greet the friends and angels
Who await my coming there. [Refrain]
