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

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

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