Representative Text

1 I am walking in the narrow way,
I am living for Jesus ev’ry day;
I have peace that never will depart,
Since Jesus won my heart.

Jesus won my heart,
Jesus won my heart;
By His love so full and free,
And the grace He gave to me.
Jesus won my heart.

2 In the chains of sin my soul was bound,
And my spirit no comfort ever found;
Oh, what joy and love He did impart,
When Jesus won my heart. [Refrain]

3 He has saved me by His wondrous grace,
And at last I shall see His blessed face;
From the ways of sin I’m far apart,
Since Jesus won my heart. [Refrain]
