Oh Glory How Happy I Am

Oh, when I was out in the world of sin, I had no one to be my friend
C                 G                 D    G
Jesus came and He took me in…Glory, hallelu
Then he took my feet out the miry clay, He placed them up on a Rock to stay
C                G                   D    G
I thank God that I can say……..Glory, hallelu

Oh, Glory how happy I am; Oh, Glory how happy I am
   C                     G                        D    G
My soul is washed in the blood of the Lamb…Glory, hallelu

Out in darkness and I could not see, Jesus came and He rescued me
He cleansed me and gave me victory…….Glory, hallelu
One day while Jesus was passing by, He set my sinful soul on fire
He made me laugh and He made me cry…Glory, hallelu

When I could not understand, Jesus, He gave me a lending hand
He led me away to the promised land…Glory, hallelu
Then He gave me a horn and He told me to blow go in peace & sin no more
He led me away to the upright shore…..Glory, hallelu

I know something that's mighty swell, A sweet little story I love to tell
Jesus saved my soul from Hell………...Glory, hallelu
Stand back Satan, get out of my way, I don't want to hear not a word you say
I'm on my way to the King's highway…Glory, hallelu
Well thank God I got over at last, Thank God I got over at last
My feet are planted in the narrow path….Glory, hallelu

When I had no home to claim, I begin to call on Jesus' name
He saved me from old Satan's chains…Glory, hallelu
Now I'm fire-baptized and holy ghost-filled, out here to do my Master's will
I must keep going, I can’t be still……..Glory, hallelu
