Representative Text

1 Jesus sought and saved me,
When a wand’ring child;
In the fountain laved me,
Wretched and defiled.
Dried the eyes so tearful,
Bade the anguish cease,
And the heart so fearful,
Filled with heav’nly peace.

Chorus:
All my songs shall be,
“Jesus died for me,”
Never sweeter song was sung,
Than “Jesus died for me.”

2 All unclean He found me,
Poor and comfortless;
But He threw around me
Robes of righteousness;
Hushed the cry of sadness,
Taught me to rejoice,
And to songs of gladness
Tuned my heart and voice, [Chorus]

3 Saviour, Thine forever
I would wholly be;
Let me never, never,
Tire of serving Thee.
Gazing on Thy beauty
Will my time employ;
Toil is more than duty,
‘Tis my brightest joy. [Chorus]
