I never shall forget the day

When all the burdens of my soul were rolled away

It made me happy, glad and free

Ill sing and shout it, for Hes everything to me

 

 

Verse I:

 

                     Eb

Long years ago          when out in sing

 

                                     F7             Bb7

I had no hope          no peace within

 

                     Eb                                    Eb  Bb/D  Cm

Down on my knees           in agony

I prayed to Jesus and He gladly set me free

Now I can feel          Him by my side

My feeble steps          He comes to guide

When trials come,          He comforts me

Thru faith in Him, oer sin I have the victory

                    Eb

Oh, sinner, come          to Jesus now

At His dear feet          just humbly bow

Confess to Him          your evry sin

Hell save and cleanse; give you peace and joy within
