1. When sinners see their lost condition
And feel the pressing load of sin
And Jesus cometh on His mission
To heal the sin-sick heart within,
All grief must flee before His grace,
And joy divine will take its place.
4. When Jesus comes, –O blessed story!–
He works a change in heart and life;
God’s kingdom comes with power and glory
To young and old, to man and wife;
Through Sacrament and living Word
Faith, love, and hope are now conferred.
