When sunshine had left me, my way had grown dim

Tune: [When sunshine had left me, my way had grown dim]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 When sunshine had left me, my way had grown dim,
When the cup of my sorrow was full to the brim,
There came a Deliv'rer my soul looked to Him--
My All-sufficient Savior.

My All-sufficient Savior came,
He took my sin, He bore my shame;
Now I have peace in His dear name--
My All-sufficient Savior.

2 When Satan controlled me no freedom I knew;
When I sought earthly follies my pleasures were few;
But Jesus bro't freedom and joys that are true--
My All-sufficient Savior. [Refrain]

3 'Tis friendship most precious, this friendship divine,
And the light of His presence so brightly doth shine;
This wonderful Friend will forever be mine,--
My All-sufficient Savior. [Refrain]
