Representative Text

1 I lay bound and helpless in the toils of sin,
All was dark around me, all was dark within;
Jesus, full of pity, left his home above,
Came my soul to rescue, what amazing love!

Jesus has redeemed me, this shall be my song;
Jesus has redeemed me, I to him belong.

2 I will gladly follow where my Savior leads,
Through the tangle wildwood, or through flow’ry meads;
By his love encircled, naught of ill I fear,
Singing as I journey, so that all may hear: [Chorus]

3 Come, O come to Jesus, why will you delay?
Now he waits to save you, why not come today?
What a blessed Savior! all who will may come;
Take his offered pardon, share his happy home. [Chorus]
