1 In tender compassion He sought me,
When I was a stranger to grace,
And back to His fold He has brought me,
To look on His wonderful face.

O I am no stranger to Jesus,
And He is no stranger to me;
In fellowship sweet,
I sit at His feet,
No mortal more blessed could be.

2 In loving communion together,
Tho’ sometimes the way may be long,
Tho’ pleasant or dark be the weather,
His love is the theme of my song. [Refrain]

3 I tell Him whatever perplexes,
His grace is sufficient each day;
I tell Him each trouble that vexes,
He helps me each step of the way. [Refrain]

4 I know He is with me each moment,
And close to His heart I would dwell;
But still I shall know Him far better
In heaven where all shall be well. [Refrain]
