Representative Text

1 I have found Him! I have found Him!
To the cross I ventured near;
Threw the arms of faith around Him,
While He whisper’d words of cheer.

Hallelujah! I have found Him!
Blessed Savior, friend divine;
Hallelujah! I have found Him!
I am His and He is mine.

2 Freely now to me is given
Peace and pardon, life and light;
All I need for earth and heaven
In His boundless grace unite. [Refrain]

3 O the joy when first I knew Him!
He was seeking there for me;
Tender mercy drew me to Him,
His forevermore to be. [Refrain]

4 I have found Him! I have found Him!
He is precious to my soul;
While my hopes are twining ‘round Him,
All my cares on Him I roll. [Refrain]
