1 My heart is singing, the bells are ringing
To Christ I’m clinging; He gives me peace.
From chains that bound me, that were around me,
Since Christ has found me I have release.

2 Chorus;
Oh, glory, oh, glory! I’m ever proclaiming the story,
How Jesus has saved me and washed all my sin stains away!
Oh, glory, oh, glory! I’m ever proclaiming the story,
How Jesus has saved me and turned my night to day.

3 To be professing without possessing
Must be distressing, to say the least.
To have salvation, God’s approbation,
No condemnation, is like a feast.

4 Some have a rusty, a dark and dusty,
An old and musty experience.
If wrong they’ righten, their loads would lighten,
Their faces brighten, their joys commence.

5 Oh, stop professing without the blessing;
Begin confessing your Lord divine.
Oh, cease your doubting, begin your shouting,
Your foes be routing; for Jesus shine.
