Pardoning and healing Thee!

And thy name enrolled in heav'n;
Tho' a rebel thou hast been
Christ hath ransomed thee from sin. [Refrain]

Daily giving victory. [Refrain]

Show to men this way of love,
And the pow'r of Jesus prove. [Refrain]

Walking in God's light divine!
Praise Him for His grace so free,
Pardoning and healing thee. [Refrain]
