1 The Savior came one summer day,
And took my load of sin away;
From guilty fears He gave release,
And filled my soul with joy and peace.
O hallejujah to the Lamb!
I’ll praise His name for what I am!
For on that bright and happy day
He washed my many sins away.
2 O glory be to Jesus’ name!
The Spirit as "the Witness" came;
He turned me from my sinful ways,
And filled my heart with songs of praise. [Refrain]
3 I walked in peace from day to day,
And sought my Savior to obey;
But to my grief I found within
That stubborn thing, "indwelling sin." [Refrain]
4 In vain I strove to watch and pray,
And walk in triumph day by day;
The foe would take me by surprise,
And sinful passions would arise. [Refrain]
5 By grace divine, the path was plain,
I saw the "old man" must be slain;
Upon the cross I groaned and died,
And, like my Lord, was crucified. [Refrain]
O hallelujah to the Lamb!
Forever praise the great I AM!
He can the strong man safely bind,
And free us from the "carnal mind."
6 O joy divine! in that same hour
The Lord of glory came in power;
He freed me from indwelling sin,
And now He sweetly dwells within. [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #7939
