1 Lord, I was blind; I could not see
in your marred visage any grace:
but now the beauty of your face
in radiant vision dawns on me.
2 Lord, I was deaf; I could not hear
ghe thrilling music of your voice:
but now I hear you and rejoice,
and all your uttered words are dear.
3 Lord, I was mute; I could not speak
the grace and glory of your name:
but now, as touched with living flame,
my lips will speak for Jesus' sake.
4 Lord, I was dead; I could not move
my lifeless soul from sin's dark grave:
but now the power of life you gave
has raised me up to know your love.
