    Verse 1
    Once my eyes were blind to the beauty of the Lord
    Once my ears were closed to the pleading of His word;
    Once these hands of mine pressed the thorn-crown on His brow,
    But all this He has forgiven, and it's alright now.

    Chorus
    Yes, it's alright now, Yes, it's alright now
    He has heard my prayer and it's alright now
    Yes, it's alright now, yes, it's alright now
    All my sins are covered and it's alright now

    Verse 2
    Once I loved the world with its glitter and its show;
    I was captive held with the pleasures here below,
    But one day He came, though I cannot tell you how,
    With His blood my sins He covered, and it's alright now

    Chorus
    Yes, it's alright now, Yes, it's alright now
    He has heard my prayer and it's alright now
    Yes, it's alright now, yes, it's alright now
    All my sins are covered and it's alright now

    Verse 3
    O it is so precious to be alone with Him,
    When the shadows fall and my eyes with tears are dim,
    Just to feel His hand rest in love upon my brow
    And to hear Him gently whisper, `It is alright now`

    Chorus
    Yes, it's alright now, Yes, it's alright now
    He has heard my prayer and it's alright now
    Yes, it's alright now, yes, it's alright now
    All my sins are covered and it's alright now
