Lyrics

My God, I have found the thrice blessèd ground,
Where life and where joy and true comfort abound.

Refrain

Hallelujah! Thine the glory.
Hallelujah! Amen.
Hallelujah! Thine the glory.
Revive us again.

’Tis found in the blood of Him who once stood
My refuge and safety, my surety with God.

Refrain

He bore on the tree the sentence for me,
And now both the surety and sinner are free.

Refrain

And though here below ’mid sorrow and woe,
My place is in Heaven with Jesus I know.

Refrain

And this I shall find for such is His mind
He’ll not be in glory and leave me behind.
