Gone are the days of wretchedness and sin, Gone are the days of conflicts fierce within, Gone far away, no more my soul to know: My Savior’s blood my heart is keeping white as snow.
Refrain: I’m happy, I’m happy, For with Jesus now I live, And constant peace, and joy, and comfort He doth give.
Gone are the days a Savior’s love I spurned, Gone are the times from Calv’ry’s scene I turned; Gone, to be brought against me nevermore! My Savior’s blood has bought my pardon—safe and sure.
Come are the joys of a heart in blood washed white; Come is the peace of a conscience pure and right; Come to my heart, there ever to remain, “For me to live is Christ” henceforth, and “Death is gain!”
