Life wears a different face to me,
Since I found my Savior;
Rich mercy at the cross I see,
My dying, living Savior.

Refrain

Golden sunbeams round me play;
Jesus turns my night to day;
Heaven seems not far away,
Since I found my Savior.

He sought me in His wondrous love,
So I found my Savior;
He brought salvation from above,
My dear, almighty Savior.

Refrain

The passing clouds may intervene,
Since I found my Savior;
But He is with me, though unseen,
My ever present Savior.

Refrain

A strong hand kindly holds my own,
Since I found my Savior;
It leads me onward to the throne,
Oh, there I’ll see my Savior!

Refrain
