1 I heard a sweet story, I know its true,
It took a firm grip on my soul;
It told of a Savior who came to save,
And make a broken whole.

Chorus:
His love won my heart,
A love that will never depart;
He took sin away, and came in to stay,
His love won my heart.
His love won my heart,
A love that will never depart;
I want to be faithful, and loyal and true
To the love that won my heart.

2 I yielded myself to this Christ divine,
For sin was a burden to me;
He lifted that burden and gave me peace,
And set my captive soul free. [Chorus]

3 And now I am singing along my way,
Where once I was burdened and sad;
Now He is my Shepherd, my Friend and Guide,
And keeps my heart ever glad. [Chorus]
