1. When a sinner lost in darkness
I was wand'ring to and fro,
Without Christ to cheer or comfort
In this world of sin and woe,
'Twas the blessed Saviour found me,
And he turned me not away;
But he had compassion on me,
And he washed my sins away.
All for Jesus, blessed Jesus,
All for him I freely give;
All for Jesus, blessed Jesus!
'Tis a blessed life to live.
2. When the blessed Saviour called me
I obeyed with all my heart,
And the world seemed brighter, clearer,
When I chose the better part;
When I said, "Here, Jesus, take me,
Fall I humbly at thy feet,"
Then, oh, then the Saviour bless'd me,
Filled me with his presence sweet.
3. Glorious was the light of heaven
Streaming in upon my soul,
Glory to the Lamb forever,
Who has cleans'd and made me whole;
I will live and toil for Jesus,
I will praise him while I live,
And, when toil and care is over,
He eternal life will give.
