Whereas I Once Was Blind


Whereas I once was blind, but now I see,
This I know,
This I know.
The Lord has shown His mercy unto me,
Unbarred my prison door and set me free;
My heart is full of joy as it can be.
This I know,
This I know.

The world that once was dark is full of light,
This I know,
This I know.
The day has come-away has rolled the night,
The “path f life” is clear unto my sight,
And all around is beautiful and bright.
This I know,
This I know.

By faith in Christ my sins are all forgiven,
This I know,
This I know.
The sea of death is passed, the Rock is riven,
I am a child of God, and heir of heaven,
My heart unto the Lord is fully given.
This I know,
This I know.

My blessed Saviour keeps me every hour,
This I know,
This I know.
Secure am I against the tempter’s power,
I fear not rolling waves nor storms that lower;
His holy word a “sword,” a “shield,” a “tower.”
This I know,
This I know.
