Full Text

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.

Chorus:
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.
[Chorus]

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.
[Chorus]
