My life was darkened once by sin

Full Text

1. My life was darkened once by sin,
I would not let my Saviour in;
But now I cannot from him part
His dying love has won my heart.

Chorus:
His dying love has won my heart,
And now I cannot from him part
His dying love has won my heart.

2. There is no place I love so well
As by my Master's side to dwell;
He bids my doubts and fears depart,
Since dying love has won my heart. [Chorus]

3. Oh happy day! Oh blissful hour!
When Jesus by his matchless pow'r
Broke Satan's spell and magic art,
And dying love thus won my heart. [Chorus]

4. Oh, sinful one do not delay!
But seek his joy and peace to-day,
He will just now to you impart
His dying love that won my heart. [Chorus]
