Once I Came A Poor Penitent Sinner


Once I came, a poor, penitent sinner,
But the Saviour of men heard my pray’r;
Then I went on the mountain with Jesus,
And his glory did shine ’round me there.

Refrain:
Let the winds and the waves sweep around me,
I have peace which the world cannot share;
For I’ve been on the mountain with Jesus,
And his glory hath shone ’round me there.

Once I bowed in the valley of sorrow,
But I heard a voice, “do not despair;”
Then I went on the mountain with Jesus,
And his glory did shine ’round me there. [Refrain]

Soon I’ll walk with my Lord down the valley,
And we’ll enter those portals so fair;
Then I’ll live on the mountain with Jesus,
And his glory will shine ’round me there. [Refrain]
