Lyrics

To the feet of my Savior
In trembling and fear,
A penitent sinner I came;
He saw, and in mercy,
He bade me draw near;
All glory and praise to His name.

Refrain

He touched me and thus made me whole;
Bringing comfort and rest to my soul;
O glad happy day, all my sins rolled away!
For He touched me and thus made me whole.

I knew not the tender
Compassion and love
That Jesus, my Savior, had shown;
Tho’ burdened with grief,
His dear hand brought relief,
He healed me and called me His own.

Refrain

My grace is sufficient,
I heard His dear voice,
O come and find rest for your soul;
From sin you to save,
My life freely I gave;
I died that you might be made whole.

Refrain

O Jesus, dear Jesus,
Thy name I adore,
For saving and keeping my soul;
Thy praises I’ll sing,
My redeemer and king,
Thy dear, loving hand made me whole.
