1 Once my eyes were blind to the beauty of the Lord,
Once my ears were closed to the pleadings of His word;
Once these hands of mine pressed the thorn-crown on His brow,
But all this He has forgiven, and it’s all right now.

Refrain:
Yes, it’s all right now, yes, it’s all right now,
He has heard my pray’r, and it’s all right now;
Yes, it’s all right now, yes, it’s all right now,
All my sins are cover’d, and its’ all right now.

2 Once I loved the world with its glitter and its show,
I was captive held with the pleasures here below;
But one day He came, tho’ I cannot tell you how,
With His blood my sins He covered, and it’s all right now. [Refrain]

3 O it is so precious to be alone with Him,
When the shadows falls, and my eyes with tears are dim;
Just to feel His hand rest in love upon my brow,
And to hear him gently whisper, “It is all right now.” [Refrain]
