1 When He took my sins away!
Jesus came to me to stay,
And He changed my night to day,
He has filled my heart with praise,
Here I’ll Ebenezer raise,
O how pleasant are His ways!
Hallelujah! glory! glory!
I will tell the blessed story;
Jesus gives me grace and glory!
He’s my Savior!
2 When I’m tempted, when I’m tried,
With Him ever at my side,
Naught of harm can e’er betide,
He is all in all to me,
He gives perfect victory,
Beauties new in Him I see!
3 He has cleansed me, this I know,
And He keeps me here below,
As a conqueror I go,
To the Canaan land I’m led,
On rich bounty I am fed,
“More to follow” He has said,
4 He’s preparing me a place,
Soon I’ll see Him face to face,
How I’ll sing redeeming grace,
With the blood-bought robed in white,
Where there cometh no more night;
That blest city’s just in sight!
