O hear me while I tell you what Jesus did for me,
He brought me out of darkness, to light and liberty;
He filled my heart with sunshine; I’m happy as can be;
His glory fills my soul.

Refrain

His glory, His glory,
His glory fills my soul;
His glory, His glory,
His glory fills my soul.

He led me to the fountain, and washed away my sin;
He clothed me in white raiment, and cleansed my heart within;
He is my blessèd Savior; I give my life to Him;
His glory fills my soul.

Refrain

He drove out sin and Satan, and filled my heart with love;
He made my angry spirit as gentle as a dove;
My life o’erflows with gladness, the earth’s like Heav’n above;
His glory fills my soul.

Refrain

I never was so happy, I’m free from every care;
For Jesus travels with me, my burdens all to share;
And if I’m faithful to Him, a golden crown I’ll wear;
His glory fills my soul.

Refrain

O sinner come to Jesus and to Him bend the knee;
You cannot buy salvation, the offer’s full and free;
Upon the cross of Calv’ry, He died for you and me;
His glory fills my soul.

Refrain
