Representative Text

1 I once was loaded down with sin, but Jesus came along;
Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
Now I am free and in my heart I have a happy song;
Hallelujah, praise His name!

Hallelujah! Praise His holy name!
Hallelujah! He’s ev’ry day the same;
My sins are all forgiven,
I’m on my way to Heaven,
I’ll shout His name forever:
Praise His name!

2 How many times I stumbled, bearing such a heavy load;
Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
But Jesus took my burdens, led me to the narrow road;
Hallelujah, praise His name! [Chorus]

3 The grace of God is flowing from the Cross of Calvary:
Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
I’m happy, for I know that there is grace enough for me;
Hallelujah, praise His name! [Chorus]
