1 My heart was not right
In my dear Savior’s sight,
I knew not the peace all sublime;
I came to his side,
And his blood was applied,
Hallelujah! I know he is mine.

I know he is mine,
Yes, I know he is mine;
I’ll doubt him no longer
I know he is mine.

2 My soul was distressed,
With its sorrow oppressed,
Till Jesus my Savior I found;
But now he’s my theme,
While his word keeps me clean,
Hallelujah! his grace doth abound. [Refrain]

3 I walk in the light
Of his presence so bright,
His love makes my heaven below;
I’ll sing of his grace
Till I see his dear face,
With the dear ones washed whiter than snow. [Refrain]

4 And there evermore
I’ll my Savior adore,
Give praise to his power divine;
I’ll fall at his feet
And the story repeat,
Hallelujah! I know he is mine. [Refrain]
