1 I’m happy and singing as onward I go,
That others Thy wonderful story may know;
I’ll tell it each day while I tarry below:
My Savior delivers from sin.

My Savior delivers from sin,
And I am so happy in Him;
Oh, wonderful story!
To Him be the glory!
My Savior delivers from sin.

2 He found me in fetters and took them away,
O’erflowed me with gladness, turned night into day,
And lovingly girded my soul for the fray:
My Savior delivers from sin. [Refrain]

3 I’m under the wings of the Heavenly Dove,
And some day will praise Him forever above,
Because by the pow’r of His infinite love
My Savior delivers from sin. [Refrain]
