1 My God, I have found—the thrice blessed ground,
Where life and where joy and true comfort abound.

Hallelujah! Thine the glory, Hallelujah! Amen.
Hallelujah! Thine the glory, Revive us again.

2 ’Tis found in the blood of Him who once stood
My refuge and safety, my surety with God. [Refrain]

3 He bore on the tree the sentence for me,
And now both the Surety and sinner are free. [Refrain]

4 Accepted I am in the once offered Lamb;
It was God, who Himself had devised the plan. [Refrain]

5 And though here below, ’mid sorrow and woe,
My place is in Heaven with Jesus I know. [Refrain]

6 And this I shall find, for such is His mind,
“He’ll not be in glory and leave me behind.” [Refrain]
