Which made me repent of my sins,
And see my ruined condition,
For ’tis here that all wisdom begins.

From sin He setteth me free;
Go tell it to every nation,
That Jesus has saved even me.

All glory to God for conversion,
And the witness He sent from above,
For the joy and peace He has given,
And a heart that is filled with His love.


All glory to God for the promise
To cleanse all defilement away,
And send us the gift of His Spirit,
When all on the altar we lay.


All glory to God! He is keeping
That which I’ve committed to Him;
His blood o’er my soul is now flowing,
And Jesus abideth within.
