1 I loved Him that day when in bondage complete,
I asked for forgiveness and knelt at His feet;
When soft as a bell-note that sounds as from heav’n,
I heard Him say sweetly, “Thy sins are forgiv’n.”

Refrain:
But greater each day is the love of my Savior:
Rich are the blessings that crowd all my way!
I love His forgiveness, His rest and His comfort,
And find I am loving Him more every day!

2 I love Him that day when each throb of my breast
Seemed freighted with anguish and earth held no rest;
As balm to my soul came His promise so free:
I heard Him say gently, “O come unto Me.” [Refrain]

3 I love Him that day when the tempter, apart,
In sweetest persuasion was trying his art;
‘Twas strength from my Savior brought vict’ry to me:
I heard Him say softly, “Lo, I am with thee.” [Refrain]
