Love found a way

Representative Text

1 I was a sinner! no hope could I see
Till, in His mercy so wondrous and free,
Jesus looked down in compassion on me,
And Love found the way to my heart!

Refrain:
Love found the way to my heart!
Love found the way to my heart!
Darkness was ‘round me,
For Satan had bound me.
Yet Love found the way to my heart!

2 Darkness and sin had enveloped my soul;
I was completely in Satan’s control,
But, bless the Lord, Christ in love made me whole—
And Love found the way to my heart! [Refrain]

3 Never shall sin rule within me again;
Jesus has cleansed every blemish and stain;
King of all kings He forever shall reign;
For Love found the way to my heart! [Refrain]
