Representative Text

1 Before I found salvation,
I was sunk in degradation,
And from my Saviour wandered far astray;
But I came to Calvary’s mountain,
And plunged into the fountain,
And from my heart the burden rolled away.

Refrain:
‘Twas a happy day, and no mistake,
When Jesus from my heart did take
The load of sin that made it ache,
And filled my soul with Joy.

2 Since I have been converted
And the devil’s ranks deserted,
I’ve had such joy and gladness in my soul.
For Jesus I’ve been fighting,
And in the war delighting,
And now I’m pressing on toward the goal.

3 If faithful to my Saviour,
I shall enjoy his favour,
And he will keep me safely to the end;
And when I cross the river,
I’ll live with him for ever,
And one eternal day of glory spend.
