Editors Note: William R. Newell wrote this great Hymn and Bible believers everywhere have sung it in churches, brush arbor meetings, revivals. If you know the tune why not sing it right now. This is a wonderful time to enjoy this song and bless yourself and others who might join in.
- 1. Years I spent in vanity and pride,
Caring not my Lord was crucified,
Knowing not it was for me He died
On Calvary.By God’s Word at last my sin I learned;
Mercy there was great, and grace was free;
Pardon there was multiplied to me;
There my burdened soul found liberty
Then I trembled at the law I’d spurned,
Till my guilty soul imploring turned
- Now I’ve giv’n to Jesus everything,
Now I gladly own Him as my King,
Now my raptured soul can only sing
- Oh, the love that drew salvation’s plan!
Oh, the grace that brought it down to man!
Oh, the mighty gulf that God did span
