I'm glad I came to Jesus

My blinded soul was far astray

Full Text

1 My blinded soul was far astray,
From Jesus and the narrow way,
Nor was I happy till the day
My Savior wash’d my sins away.

Refrain:
I’m glad, I came,
And sought for grace in Jesus’ name;
And ev’rywhere would I proclaim;
I’m glad I came to Jesus.

2 I had no hope of life to come,
I had no bright eternal home;
But Jesus gives me all I need,
And now I can rejoice indeed. [Refrain]

3 Before I knew Him I was lost
My soul on stormy waves was tossed;
But Jesus still’d the wind and wave,
And freely all my sins forgave. [Refrain]
