1 When out in sin, and darkness lost,
Love found me;
My fainting soul was tempest toss’d,
Love found me;
I heard the Saviour’s words so blest,
Love found me;
Come weary, heavy laden rest,
Love found me.

Refrain:
Oh, ‘twas love, love
Love that moved the mighty God,
Love, love, ‘twas love found me.

2 The Spirit rous’d me from my sleep,
Love found me;
Conviction seiz’d me strong and deep,
Love found me;
Although I long withstood His grace,
Love found me;
He wooed me to His kind embrace,
Love found me. [Refrain]

3 I’ll praise Him while He gives me breath,
Love found me;
For saving from and endless death,
Love found me;
Christ is my advocate above,
Love found me;
I’m yoked to Him in perfect love,
Love found me. [Refrain]

4 And when I reach the gold paved street,
Love found me;
I’ll sit adoring at His feet,
Love found me;
And sing hosannas round the throne,
Love found me;
Where I shall know as I am known,
Love found me. [Refrain]
