1 The Redeemer dear now holds my hand,
And is walking by my side,
And until I reach the morning land,
He will be my faithful guide.

I am His, bless His name,
His to praise and adore;
Love divine to proclaim,
I am His evermore!

2 Long outside the fold I grieved my Lord,
And was deaf to mercy’s plea,
But today I seek the great reward,
With His grace supporting me. [Refrain]

3 I have wandered far, and tested sin,
Now I’m testing love divine,
And unbroken peace has been within,
Since the day I made Him mine. [Refrain]

4 Soul in sin, look up, be saved today,
Trust the Friend who now is mine;
He will roll your burden all away,
And give peace and joy divine. [Refrain]
