Representative Text

ONCE in misery I walked alone,
Self-sufficient but sad,
But I found a friend to walk with me,
And I tell you: I’m glad!

Refrain:
When I came to him Christ came to me,
Showed me what he planned that I should be;
I was liberated there and then,
O I’ll never be the same again!

2 In the ruins of my life I stood,
I was drowning in tears,
But I found a friend to stand by me,
And I lost all my fears.

3 Discontented with a pointless life,
For direction I sighed;
Life has point and purpose now for me,
Since I made him my guide.
