Representative Text

1 The scales have fallen from my eyes,
And now I see with sweet surprise,
The way that sovereign grace has planned,
Salvation from my Saviour’s hand!

He died for me, He died for me!
The debt is paid, my soul is free!
Henceforth my life a song shall be,
A song of praise to Jesus.

2 What seemed so hard is easy now,
While at the cross I humbly bow;
One precious thought melts all my pride—
It was for me my Saviour died! [Refrain]

3 I never, never can forget
The sacrifice that paid my debt!
And since for me His life He’d give,
I’ll love and serve Him while I live! [Refrain]
