Full Text

1 Steeped in sin and degradation,
For my heart hath gone astray;
But I heard a sweet voice saying,
“Wand’ring child, come home today.”

Glory, glory hallelujah,
I am saved, redeemed and free;
Glory, glory hallelujah,
Christ has spoken peace to me.

2 In the dark alone I wandered,
With no hand to guide my way,
When an arm of mighty power,
Lead me into brightest day. [Refrain]

3 I will tell to all around me,
That salvation’s full and free,
That His boundless love and mercy,
Reaches even down to me. [Refrain]

4 Help me praise my precious Savior,
For His wondrous grace to me;
Praise Him, angels, and redeemed ones,
Praise the Lord eternally. [Refrain]
