To God I Was A Stranger


To God I was a stranger,
And far in ruin gone;
Friends pointed me to Jesus,
God’s well beloved Son,
I had no price to bring him,
I could but weep and pray,
But when in him I trusted,
He took my sins away.

Chorus:
Are you coming to the cross,
coming to the cross,
Coming to the cross to be saved,
Are you coming to the cross,
coming to the cross,
Coming to the cross to be saved.

My heart was sad, unhappy;
My sky was clouded o’er;
And while from Christ I wandered,
I sinned more and more;
But now the sun shines brightly,
My night is turned to day,
For Christ, the blessed Savior,
Has washed my sins away. [Chorus]

Oh wonderful redemption!
Oh peace and love divine!
God’s free and full salvation
Forever now is mine!
Down at the cross I knelt me,
In penitence to pray,
And, in the Savior trusting,
My burden rolled away. [Chorus]
