Representative Text

1 Though oft I wandered from the fold of God,
On the desert bleak and wild;
Still Jesus sweetly follow’d at my side,
And he said, “Come back, my child!”

I’m safe, I’m safe,
I’ll fear the storms no more,
I know my Saviour tenderly is near,
And He’ll keep till life is o’er.

2 I turned to Him while yet He was so near,
And He wash’d my sins away;
Oh! sinner, seek for mercy while He pleads,
Come into the fold today. [Refrain]

3 I have sweet peace since Jesus I have found,
And I know He’ll be my Guide;
He gently leads me, I have naught to fear,
While I’m walking by His side. [Refrain]
