1 I could feel the burden roll from my weary, sinful soul,
When the hand of love touched me;
And my heart that had been sad found a song that made it glad,
When the hand of love touched me.

Chorus:
When the hand of love touched me, (touched me,)
When the hand of love touched me, (touched me,)
I could feel the burden roll from my weary, sinful soul,
When the hand of love touched me.

2 I was lost in darkest night, but my soul beheld the light,
When the hand of love touched me;
Great despair had filled my heart, but how soon it did depart,
When the hand of love touched me. [Chorus]

3 When I heard His welcome voice, how it made my heart rejoice,
When the hand of love touched me;
When thro' grace He made me whole how His glory filled my soul,
When the hand of love touched me. [Chorus]
