Oh, bless the Lord, He cleansed my soul,
And filled my lips with singing;

Oh, bless the Lord, He cleansed my soul,
And filled my lips with singing;
He came in my poor, sinful heart,
And set the joy-bells ringing.

Oh, praise the Lord, He first loved me;
I feel new life upspringing;
He came in my poor, sinful heart,
And set the joy-bells ringing.

He placed my feet upon the Rock,
The only sure foundation;
He shows me wonders of His grace,
The blessings of salvation.

Refrain

His promise is “for all the days,”
His love for me is caring;
While in the “Father’s House” above,
A mansion He’s preparing.

Refrain

His love is calling, seeking still,
Come, every burden bringing;
The touch of Christ within your heart
Will set the joy-bells ringing.

Refrain
