1 I'm sometimes up and sometimes down,
He took my feet out of the mire and clay.
Sometimes I feel I'm Heaven bound,
He took my feet out of the mire and clay.

Chorus:
I'm so glad, I'm so glad, yes, I'm so glad
He took my feet out of the mire and clay.

2 I wish these mourners would believe
He took my feet out of the mire and clay.
That Christ is waiting to receive.
He took my feet out of the mire and clay. [Chorus]

3 Let every Christian trim his lamp.
He took my feet out of the mire and clay.
Jesus is marching through the camp.
He took my feet out of the mire and clay. [Chorus]

4 I have my breast-plate sword and shield,
He took my feet out of the mire and clay.
Boldly I'll march through Satan's field.
He took my feet out of the mire and clay. [Chorus]

5 O come, young converts, can't you tell
He took my feet out of the mire and clay.
How Jesus saved your souls from Hell?
He took my feet out of the mire and clay. [Chorus]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
