1. Oh, I sought so long for something,
That would give me joy and peace within;
Till at last I came to Jesus
And He cleansed my heart from ev’ry sin.

Oh I’ve found Him, yes, I’ve found Him,
And what wonders in my life He has wrought,
Oh I’ve found Him, yes, I’ve found Him,
Him for whom my soul so long had sought.

2. My poor heart was oh so hungry,
And the world was full of sin and strife;
But one day I met my Savior
And now I have eternal life. [Refrain]

3. Since I’ve found my blessèd Savior,
Life is filled with peace and perfect love;
And my gaze that once was earthward,
Now is firmly fixed on Heav’n above. [Refrain]
