Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.50

First Line: I met a Stranger fair to see

I met a Stranger fair to see,
As walked I down life's rugged way ;
He spoke so sweet,so tenderly,
He won me to Himself that day.
It was the Man ...of Galilee . . .
Who whispered words ...of joy to me : . . .
Thy many sins all forgiven thee,
Thy sins be all . . . forgiven thee.

2 And when that Stranger spoke to me,
My heart threw off its guilty load ;
I felt at once that I was free ;
I left my burdens by the road.
3 I love that Stranger since the hour
He talked to me in tender tone ;
A joy is mine, I feel its power--
And Him as Lord I'm glad to own.
