Representative Text

1 Life wears a different face to me,
Since I found my Saviour;
Rich mercy at the cross I see,
My dying, living Saviour.

Golden sunbeams 'round me play,
Jesus turns my night to day,
Heaven seems not far away,
Since I found my Saviour.

2 He sought me in His wondrous love,
So I found my Saviour,
He bro't salvation from above,
My dear, almighty Saviour. [Chorus]

3 The passing clouds may intervene,
Since I found my Saviour,
But He is with me--tho' unseen,
My ever present Saviour. [Chorus]

4 A strong hand kindly holds my own,
Since I found my Saviour,
It leads me onward to the throne,
O there I'll see my Saviour. [Chorus]
