I Found It!
Words and Music by Marjorie Byroads

Acts 20:24
But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself,
so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received
of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.


          I found it!  I found it!  I found it!
          The Pearl of great price!
          I found it!  I found it!  I found it!
          That Pearl is Jesus the Christ!
          I willingly sold all to buy it,
          Won't you come and go with me?
          And share the joy of Jesus,
          And join the Jubilee!

          I searched and I searched for this treasure
          Through years of toil and strife;
          I sought it through riches and pleasure,
          But I found no joy in my life.
          But now I have found Him, I'm happy,
          I'm secure, fulfilled and free!
          I've found the joy of Jesus,
          And Jesus has found me!

          I've found Him!  I've found HIm!   I've found Him!
          Christ's Peace and Grace flow free.
          He's found me!  He's found me!   He's found me!
          I'm accepted and free to be "me"!
          I serve Him because I love Him,
          God's Spirit His love imparts;
          He's changed my despair to rejoicing!
          A new song He's put in my heart.
