Representative Text

1 Hallelujah! hallelujah! O what joy divine!
Since I heard the voice of Jesus, “Fear not, thou art mine!”
Now a peace that passeth knowledge cheers each passing day,
While his glory freely given shines upon my way.

Chorus:
When the conflict of life is over, at his right hand
With the ransom’d from ev’ry nation, redeem’d I’ll stand;
There I’ll see my Savior,
And I’ll tell forever
How he saved when I came pleading before his feet.

2 Oh, it was a happy moment when I heard him say,
“Tho’ your sins be red as crimson, they are washed away;”
And he freely, freely gave me pardon full, complete,
As I lay a helpless sinner pleading at his feet. [Chorus]

3 Glory! glory! I keep singing all along my way,
For the peace of full salvation fills my soul today;
And my heart, so glad, rejoices—knowing he is mine,
For the Savior walks beside me... Comforter divine. [Chorus]

4 And in heav’n I’ll sing forever praises to his name,
And I’ll tell to list’ning angels how to me he came,
In his love so kind and tender, with forgiveness sweet,
When I lay a helpless sinner pleading at his feet. [Chorus]
