Full Text

1 I met a Stranger fair to see,
As walked I down life’s rugged way;
He spoke so sweet, so tenderly,
He won me to Himself that day.

Refrain:
It was the Man of Galilee,
Who whispered words of joy to me:
Thy many Sins be all forgiven thee,
Thy sins be all forgiven thee.

2 And when that Stranger spoke to me,
My heart threw off its guilty load;
I felt at once that I was free;
I left my burdens by the road. [Refrain]

3 I love that Stranger since the hour
He talked to me in tender tone;
A joy is mine, I feel its pow’r,
And Him as Lord I’m glad to own. [Refrain]
