Representative Text

1 O soul, thou hast wandered afar from thy Lord,
There’s hope for the sinner who trusts to His word;
Then ask Him to save with a grace that is free,
He has done it for others, He’ll do it for thee
He has done it for others, He’ll do it for thee.

2 O soul, in thy weakness turn over to Him
And ask Him to help thee when pathways are dim;
The darkness will vanish, the tempters will flee,
He has done it for others, He’ll do it for thee
He has done it for others, He’ll do it for thee.

3 O soul, on His bounty forever depend,
And ask Him in mercy and love to befriend;
To lead thee by faith where thine eyes cannot see,
He has done it for others, He’ll do it for thee
He has done it for others, He’ll do it for thee.
