Representative Text

1 One thing I know; O bless his name,
To me the Lord of mercy came,
He filled my heart with love’s bright flame,
This I know, this I know.

I know, I know He loved me so,
He saved my soul from sin and woe,
Now peace and joy He doth bestow,
This I know, this I know.

2 One thing I know; He heard my cries,
With mighty power He touched my eyes,
To see the light that never dies,
This I know, this I know. [Refrain]

3 One thing I know; He died for me,
In Him my hope, my trust shall be,
My Saviour lives eternally,
This I know, this I know. [Refrain]

4 One thing I know; the Saviour’s mine,
O boundless grace, O joy divine!
And heavenly beams around me shine,
This I know, this I know. [Refrain]

5 One thing I know; O help me sing
Such happy praise to Christ our King
While smiling faith and love upsprings,
This I know, this I know. [Refrain]
