Representative Text

1 You ask me, brethren, how I know that Jesus is divine:
The rather ask how I know that yonder sun doth shine;
The rather bid me tell you how I know that billows roll,
Or winds sweep on from north to south!
Why, friends, “He saved my soul,”

Glory, glory to Jesus,
Let the chorus roll!
Glory, glory to Jesus,
Because “He saved my soul.”

2 A wand’rer from my Father’s house, he took me by the hand;
A mariner on raging seas, he guided me to land;
A weary, storm-tossed man, he came, and made me like a child,
As hungry to receive the truth,
As gentle and as mild.— [Refrain]

3 He saved me! saved me from myself, and saved me from my sins,
And here, just in that precious truth, my paradise begins;
I know that Christ the blessed One is Man, and is Divine,
I know because—oh! brethren, hear!
“He saved a soul like mine.”— [Refrain]
