ONE DAY I TRAVELED A TOILSOME ROAD (Lillenas, 1923)
One day I traveled a toilsome road
Over the hills of despair; One day I carried a weary load,
Cumbered with toil and with care.
The burden that once I carried is gone, is gone
Of all my sins there remaineth not one, not one.
Jesus, Savior of all, hath ransomed me,
Bearing my sins upon Calvary,
Giving me glorious liberty;
My burden of sin is gone.
Gone is the night with its shadows drear;
Morning hath dawned upon me,
Gone is the burden of anxious fear;
Freedom my portion shall be.
No more the burden of guilt is mine;
No more in bondage I dwell.
Unto my glorious king divine
Jubilant praises shall swell.
