Representative Text

1 On the mountains of sin I once wandered,
I was far away from my God;
Then my time and my talents I squandered,
And in sin’s broad pathway I trod.

O such wonderful love
Coming down from above,
And stood in my poor, guilty place;
From the mountains of sin,
He gathered me in,
O wonderful, wonderful grace.

2 But a voice in my heart kept entreating,
Poor soul, come, O come to thy God;
That sweet voice I could hear still repeating,
O will you not trust in my blood? [Refrain]

3 Sweet and low were the tones of His pleading,
O will you not come unto me?
All the blessings thy poor soul is needing,
I freely will give unto thee. [Refrain]

4 Then to Jesus I went, sin confessing,
My burden from off me did roll;
His free pardon and peace then possessing,
Joy flooded the depths of my soul. [Refrain]

5 Ever since that glad day I’ve been doing
The work God appoints unto me;
Still with joy the way upward pursuing,
Till His face in glory I see. [Refrain]
