If you know Bright’s full name, or where to get a good pho­to of him (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


Jesus my Sav­ior came to save me
When I was wan­d’ring out in the night;
Riches of glo­ry free­ly gave me;
Flooded my soul with His won­drous light.


I’m saved! saved! this is my sto­ry:
Jesus my Sav­ior cleans­es and keeps me!
I’m saved! saved! filled with His glo­ry!
Glory to Je­sus, His grace is free.

Jesus my Sav­ior came to cleanse me,
Carnal in heart and fight­ings with­in;
Now I enjoy His pre­cious full­ness,
Power and vic­t’ry o’er in­bred sin.


Jesus my Sav­ior came to guide me,
Over the mount­ains, down thro’ the vale;
Still He is with me, strong to keep me;
Following Him I shall ne­ver fail.


Jesus my Sav­ior soon will call me
Home to my man­sions, shin­ing above;
There I shall see Him in His glo­ry,
Praise and ad­ore Him in songs of love.
