Representative Text

1 Once I wandered in sin and folly,
Closed my ears to the Saviour’s voice;
Lived for earth’s paltry pleasures wholly,
Made the world and its ways my choice.

Refrain:
Yet He loved me in all my sin;
And He pleaded to let Him in.
And He offered me rest upon His breast,
And the glory with Him to win.
Yes, He loved me in all my sin,
And He pleaded to let Him in;
And He offered me rest upon His breast
And the glory with Him to win.

2 Sick at heart, but in pride refusing
To acknowledge my sin and shame;
And His patience and grace abusing,
I made light of His peerless name. [Refrain]

3 Seeking joy, I found nought but sorrow,
And tho’ weary, I knew no rest;
Troubled days and an anxious morrow,
But no room for the heavenly Guest. [Refrain]

4 Then His love, O, how great and tender!
Won at last o’er my stubborn will;
And with joy now to Him I render
Praise for mercy that sought me still. [Refrain]
