CONVERSION




That was a time of wondrous love,
When Christ my Lord was passing by;
He felt his tender pity move,
And brought his great salvation nigh.


Guilty and self-condemned I stood
Nor thought his mercy was so near;
When he my stubborn heart subdued,
And planted all his graces there.


My eyes were sealed, the shades of night
O’er all my mental powers were drawn;
He spoke the word, ‘Let there be light,’
And straight the day began to dawn.


When on the verge of endless pain,
He gently whispered, I am thine,
I lost my fears and dropped my chain,
And felt a transport all divine.


Now he supports the work begun,
Strengthens my hands and guides my way.
To him be endless honours done,
Let heaven and earth resound his praise.
