1 Jesus came to me, and He touched my eyes,
When I was blinded so;
And He gave to me my perfect sight,
And His glory I know.

And His glory I know, and His glory I know;
Jesus touched my heart, and He made me whole,
And His glory I know.

2 Jesus stays with me, and He keeps my soul,
Where’er I chance to go;
For He cleansed my heart and made me whole,
And His glory I know. [Refrain]

3 Jesus washed my life with His precious blood,
I’m whiter than the snow;
I am fully reconciled to God,
And His glory I know. [Refrain]

4 Jesus dwells in me, I will shout and sing,
My heart is all aglow;
I am looking for my glorious king,
For His glory I know. [Refrain]

5 Jesus will come down and will say, "Well done!"
Away with Him I’ll go;
And we’ll fly beyond the setting sun,
For His glory I know. [Refrain]
