I Once Was A Stranger
To Grace And To God,
I Knew Not My Danger
And Felt Not My Load;
Though Friends Spoke In Rapture
Of Christ On The Tree,
Jehovah Tsidkenu
Was Nothing To Me.

Like Tears From The Daughters
Of Zion That Roll,
I Wept When The Waters
Went Over His Soul;
Yet Thought Not That My Sins
Had Nailed To The Tree
Jehovah Tsidkenu;
It Was Nothing To Me.

When Free Grace Awoke Me
By Light From On High,
Then Legal Fears Shook Me,
I Trembled To Die;
No Refuge, No Safety
In Self Could I See,
Jehovah Tsidkenu
My Saviour Must Be.

My Terrors All Vanished
Before The Sweet Name,
My Guilty Fears Banished,
With Boldness I Came
To Drink At The Fountain,
Life-Giving And Free,
Jehovah Tsidkenu
Is All Things To Me.

Even Treading The Valley,
The Shadow Of Death,
This Watchword Shall Rally
My Faltering Breath;
For When From Life’s Fever
My God Sets Me Free,
Jehovah Tsidkenu
My Death Song Shall Be
