Dear Friend of Hymnary,

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site.

I have found at last the Savior

Full Text

1. I have found at last the Saviour,
Of whom I've often heard,
And I have the precious favor,
He has promised in His word;
O the joy that comes to me,
And the pow'r that makes me free,
My soul is filled with praises,
'Tis the year of jubilee.

2. I have promised I would follow,
However rough the way,
Leaving all things of tomorrow,
I will trust Him just today;
For the morning doth appear,
Which will banish ev'ry fear,
I shall see the land of Beulah,
With my eyes undimmed by tears.

3. Christ is now my sum of pleasure,
Counting all things else but dross,
I have found my richest treasure,
Around the sacred cross;
My soul is satisfied,
Forever to abide
In Thy cleft, O Rock of Ages,
Where no harm can e'er betide.

4. Should the world in arms confront me,
Though the host of hell combine,
In His name I'll win the vict'ry,
With his word the conqueror's sign.
Our Lord forever reigns,
And to His dazzling train,
He has bound the fate of nations,
And His kingdom He'll maintain.

5. By and by when war is over,
And the saints are gath'ring home,
In the presence of Jehovah,
Where the pilgrim ne'er shall roam;
My Jesus will be there,
His glory I shall share,
He will introduce my spirit,
To His Father as an heir.

Hester died when he was very young; he was taken in my his mother’s sister Caroline Miller Robbins in order to keep his freedom. It seems that he was expected to work to help the family. In his Book of Sermons (1932), he speaks of being “hired out” as a young boy, “wherever father could place me.” He married Daisy Henry when he was seventeen. Together they had eight children, some of whom would later assist him with the publication of his hymns. Tindley was largely self-taught throughout his lifetime. He learned to read mostly on his own. After he and Daisy moved to Philadelphia… Go to person page >
