I came to God, and my soul was lost,
I stood on the brink of woe;
I knew and felt that His arm would save,
To Him I alone must go.


And now a child of re­deem­ing grace,
I sing of His mer­cy free.
O, wan­der­er, come to His arms of love;
O come, there is room for thee.

I came to God and my sins con­fessed,
My sins that I could not bear;
I knelt me down with a brok­en heart,
I prayed, and He heard my pray­er.


I came to God, and He made me clean,
I plunged in the heal­ing wave;
He bade me look at the cross He bore,
And life for a look He gave.


I came to God in a child­like faith,
A faith that has made me whole;
A joy is mine that the world knows not,
The joy of a new born soul.
