1 Oh! ‘twas love that brought me to Him,
And ‘tis love that keeps me there;
By His grace it was I knew Him,
Now my Saviour dear and fair.

Refrain:
Love and grace—His love and grace—
I will sing in every place,
Till I reach that blissful shore,
Where I’ll praise Him evermore.

2 Dark it was before I found Him,
And the way I could not see;
Now the light that shines around Him,
As I follow, falls on me. [Refrain]

3 Now it is by faith I view Him,
As I walk this narrow way;
But He soon will call me to Him,
In that bright approaching day. [Refrain]

4 Then my joy will be for ever;
There no clouds will intervene;
And the darkness comes there never;—
I shall see Him as I’m seen. [Refrain]
