SINCE I TOOK HIM AS MY OWN

God has cleansed me and made me whole;
I rejoice to know I am His own.
To Him I've given my all, my soul,
For it was He who for my sins atoned.

Long I wandered in sin's deep shadow,
Heeding the devil's command,
Until Jesus with His tender mercy
Saved me from the sinking sand.

I am happy since I took Him,
Choosing Him above all else
To rely upon throughout my life,
Trusting in His loving help.

I believe His every promise,
I am a new person in His love.
I will forever sing the praises
Of my Heavenly Father up above.
