Representative Text

1 I’ve wandered in darkness, in the valleys of sin;
Afar from my Saviour many years I have been.
The storms rage around me, and I shrink back with fear;
The terrors of judgment seem to be drawing near.
Where is my Lord?
Where is my Lord?
I’m out in the darkness,
Where, O where is my Lord?

2 My heart feels the burdens and sorrows of guilt,
And yet on Mount Calvary Jesus’ life-blood was spilt;
I know that He suffered on the thrice-cursed tree,
But O, can His mercy reach a rebel like me?
Where is my Lord?
Where is my Lord?
I’m out in the darkness,
Where, O where is my Lord?

3 I hope in His goodness for mercy at last,
But strong are the fetters sin around me has cast;
Still doubt, fear and darkness fetter hope, life and trust.
I’m crushed ‘neath the burden, and I lie in the dust.
Where is my Lord?
Where is my Lord?
I’m out in the darkness,
Where, O where is my Lord?

4 O hark! ‘tis my Saviour! Such accents of love,
In tones soft and tender, pouring down from above.
He offers me pardon, and I know He doth save;
He freely forgives me, and I fear not the grave.
Here is my Lord,
Here is my Lord;
I’m safe in His bosom,
Here, O here is my Lord.
