All my life the Lord hath led me;
All my life His loving care
’Midst the wilderness hath fed me;
Still His hands my ways prepare.

Refrain

Oh, the debt of love I owe Him!
Debt no gold can e’er repay;
If I can but see and know Him,
He my sin will wash away.

Oh, how tenderly He brought me
O’er the toilsome, dangerous way;
With His own dear blood He bought me;
How can I His love repay?

Refrain

As I am, O Savior, take me!
Tho’ a sinner, save me, Lord!
Cleanse my soul from sin, and make me
Pure in spirit by Thy Word.
