1. Once I wandered in darkness unsaved,
Till the Savior came knocking at my heart,
And I opened the door, let Him in,
Now rich blessings to me He imparts.

I will never turn back,
He’s my Light ev’ry day,
No I’ll never turn back,
For my Savior is leading the way.

2. Of His love I will sing ev’ry day,
Yes, I’ll sing of His wondrous pow’r to save,
For my Savior is leading the way,
To those mansions of glory above. [Refrain]

3. In His service each day may I be,
Leading sinners to Jesus to be healed
Thro’ the blood flowing from Calvary,
Till the light of His love is revealed. [Refrain]

4. Healing body and soul by His blood,
And He keeps me each moment by His pow’r,
I will walk in the light of His Word,
And be ready to go anywhere. [Refrain]
