You Ask Me Brethren How I Know That Jesu


You ask me, brethren, how I know that Jesus is divine:
The rather ask how I know that yonder sun doth shine;
The rather bid me tell you how I know that billows roll,
Or winds sweep on from north to south!
Why, friends, “He saved my soul,”

Refrain:
Glory, glory to Jesus,
Let the chorus roll!
Glory, glory to Jesus,
Because “He saved my soul.”

A wand’rer from my Father’s house, he took me by the hand;
A mariner on raging seas, he guided me to land;
A weary, storm-tossed man, he came, and made me like a child,
As hungry to receive the truth,
As gentle and as mild.- [Refrain]

He saved me! saved me from myself, and saved me from my sins,
And here, just in that precious truth, my paradise begins;
I know that Christ the blessed One is Man, and is Divine,
I know because-oh! brethren, hear!
“He saved a soul like mine.”- [Refrain]
