I thought I was okay.

I thought my sins were small.

I thought that I was good;

That I was strong and tall.

Until I saw the Light!

 

And then I saw my sin,

And saw that hell was just

For all the things I’d done,

So go to hell I must

Until I saw the Light!

 

I saw my Saviour hang,

Upon that cross for me.

to take away my sin,

and give me liberty.

I saw, I saw the light!

 

I looked to him and said,

Lord take this sinful soul.

I give myself to you.

and then he me whole.

I saw, I saw the light!
