I met a Stranger fair to see,
As walked I down life’s rugged way;
He spoke so sweet, so tenderly,
He won me to Himself that day.
It was the Man … of Galilee…
Who whispered words … of joy to me :…
“Thy many sins … be all forgiven thee,
Thy sins be all …forgiven thee.”
And when that Stranger spoke to me,
My heart threw off its guilty load;
I felt at once that I was free;
I left my burdens by the road.
I love that Stranger since the hour
He talked to me in tender tone;
A joy is mine, I feel its power
And Him as Lord I’m glad to own.
