1 Once I was far from Jesus, a stranger to His grace,
But o'er the mountains bleak and cold He sought my steps to trace;
One day, praise God, He found me, and brought me to His fold,
And now I feel His wondrous grace can ne'er be fully told.
Yes, by grace alone, God helping me, I'll stand.
True and faithful till I reach the Glory land,
Just trusting Him each moment for His help divine,
Confessing Jesus, my blessed Saviour.
2 He's filled my life with blessing, and chang'd my heart's desire,
To witness for Him day by day my soul is all on fire,
Full well I know that dangers lie thickly round my way,
But keeping sight of Jesus Christ I cannot go astray. [Chorus]
3 So more and more of Jesus I'm learing ev'ry day,
With such a precious Friend and Guide I'll follow all the way;
I can reflect His image, and ev'ry one around
My testimony clear shall know to the Saviour I have found. [Chorus]
