When the Saviour Came My Way

You ask me why I love the Lord.
Well, friend, just let me say
Life was not worth living
‘Till the Saviour came my way.

You say I lose so much in life.
Yes, friend, PRAISE GOD, I do.
I lose the sin and sorrow
Which was all I ever knew.

I lose the days spent seeking joy,
The long nights full of tears;
I lose the heavy burdens,
Which I carried through the years.

But friend, I would not have them back
For all that you could pay.
My life was not worth living
‘Till the Saviour came my way.
