1. I found my God in early years,
He wept away my sins, my tears.
It was my best decision.
He filled my life with love and awe,
And I in light God’s Kingdom saw,
How wonderful a vision!
2. I found my God, and He found me.
Now all my life my Lord’s shall be,
In honor of His glory.
From day to day, my journey long,
I’ll sow my seed and sing my song,
In spite of woe and worry.
3. In early years my God I found,
Now for the land of Life I’m bound,
To Heaven I will hurry.
And shall I sow my seed with tears,
When ended are at last my years,
With joy my sheaves I’ll carry.
