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.

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]
