1. I can see down yonder where I had my dwelling,
In the mire and the clay of sin;
The story I am telling,
Perhaps you've never been
In the road of sin with all its gloom and sadness,
The way unbelievers go;
The way of shame and madness,
'Tis the way of pain and woe.
Chorus I am dwelling now upon the mountain, I am drinking at the crystal fountain; And the lovely vales of Eden Are more and more in sight; There pain and grief cometh never, The hand of death cannot sever, God's children are home for ever, In garments pure and white.
2. When I saw my danger and heard of a Savior,
Who had suffered and died for me;
When I learned this gracious favor,
Was to save and set me free
At the foot of the cross where I knelt confessing
I beheld His shining face,
And then there came the blessing,
Twas the light of saving grace.
3. Praise His name, I'm happy in a full salvation,
The Lord has redeemed my soul,
It is a new creation,
For His blood has made me whole,
And now I am walking in the blooming garden
Where the healing waters flow,
The stream that bringeth pardon,
And saves us here below.
