Representative Text

1 Have you lost the joy and the deep, sweet peace
Which the Lord gave to you that day
When in wondrous grace He revealed His face,
Rolled your burden of guilt away?

Chorus:
You can find Him where you left Him!
All you've lost He will restore;
He will heal the heart that grieved Him,
Fill you with Himself once more.

2 Do you love Him now as you loved Him then?
Have you still the assurance clear
That He saves from sin, that He dwells within?
Do you feel He is always near? [Chorus]

3 Has your love grown cold, has your faith grown dim?
Has your zeal lost its fervent glow?
Oh! how sadly strange that your heart should change
Tow'rd the Savior who loved you so! [Chorus]

4 Lo! He loves you still as He loved you then,
And your wand'ring He waits to heal;
If you come today in the same old way,
He will freely your pardon seal. [Chorus]

Thomas O. Chisholm was born in Franklin, Kentucky in 1866. His boyhood was spent ona farm and in teaching district schools. He spent five years as editor of the local paper at Franklin. He was converted to Christianity at the age of 26 and soon after was business manager and office editor of the "Pentecostal Hearld" or Louisville, Ky. In 1903 he entered the ministry of the M. E. Church South. His aim in writing was to incorporate as much as Scripture as possible and to avoid flippant or sentimental themes.
