1 Shall I tell you why I ceased from folly?
Why I turned away from sin?
’Twas because the love of my Redeemer
Fully won my heart to Him.
This is why I love my Savior,
Why I love to follow Him;
For He died my soul to ransom,
And He washed me from my sin.
2 Do you ask me why I seek no pleasure
In the things I once did love?
’Tis because I’ve tasted life’s pure river,
Flowing from the throne above. [Refrain]
3 Would you bid me give to all a reason
Of the hope I now possess?
It is Christ in me the hope of glory,
And His perfect holiness. [Refrain]
4 Though all men may look on me with wonder,
At the change that’s taken place;
I will walk the downward road no longer,
Bless the Lord for saving grace. [Refrain]
