1 Tho’ I once was lost in sin,
I am found, I am found!
And I’m on the upward way,
I am glory bound!
In the Savior’s tender care,
I am kept from every snare;
O there’s gladness everywhere,
I’m glory bound!

Refrain:
Glory bound! glory bound!
There is gladness in my soul,
I’m glory bound!
Glory bound! glory bound!
O there’s gladness in my soul,
I’m glory bound!

2 I heard Jesus’ loving voice,
Joyful sound, joyful sound!
And I made Him then my choice,
I am glory bound!
Joy and gladness thrills my soul,
As His name I here extol;
Blessèd thought! He made me whole,
I’m glory bound! [Refrain]

3 Bright the sunlight of His love,
All around, all around,
Wafts my soul to Heav’n above,
I am glory bound!
When my journey here is o’er,
On some bright and happy shore,
I will praise Him evermore,
I’m glory bound! [Refrain]
