I acknowledged my sin unto Thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord; and Thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin.@Psalm 32:5

Lelia N. Morris, 1899 (🔊 pdf nwc).

For God so loved this sinful world,
His Son He freely gave,
That whosoever would believe
Eternal life should have.

Refrain

’Tis true, O yes, ’tis true,
God’s wonderful promise is true;
For I’ve trusted, and tested, and tried it,
And I know God’s promise is true.

I was a wayward, wand’ring child,
A slave to sin and fear,
Until this blessèd promise fell
Like music on my ear.

Refrain

The whosoever of the Lord,
I trusted was for me,
I took Him at His gracious word;
From sin He set me free.

Refrain

Eternal life, begun below,
Now fills my heart and soul.
I’ll sing His praise forevermore
Who has redeemed my soul.
