  1. Gone from my heart the world and all its charms;
    Now through the blood I’m saved from all alarms;
    Down at the cross my heart is bending low;
    The precious blood of Jesus cleanses white as snow.
    • Refrain:
      I love Him, I love Him,
      Because He first loved me,
      And purchased my salvation on Calv’ry’s tree.
  2. Once I was lost, and ’way down deep in sin;
    Once was a slave to passions fierce within;
    Once was afraid to meet an angry God;
    But now I’m cleansed from ev’ry stain through Jesus’ blood.
  3. Once I was bound, but now I am set free;
    Once I was blind, but now the light I see;
    Once I was dead, but now in Christ I live,
    To tell the world around the peace that He doth give.
