1 Once lonely I wandered a stranger,
In sin and in darkness did’st roam;
A voice, ‘twas the voice of my Saviour,
So tenderly whispered “Come home.”

I’m glad I sought Jesus and found Him,
I’m glad His salvation is free;
He loosened the fetters that bound me,
And saved me, yes Jesus saved me.

2 ‘Neath His shelt’ring wings I will hide me,
He’ll surely defend me I know;
With this loving Master to guide me,
I’ll go where He wants me to go. [Refrain]

3 I’ve learn’d of His love and it’s greatness—
In serving Him day after day;
I’ve all to His will consecrated—
‘Twill keep me lest from Him I stray. [Refrain]
