The Hallelujah Side Lyrics & Chords

By Johnson Oatman & J. Howard Entwisle

(G)Once a sinner far from Jesus, I was (C)perishing with (G)cold, But the blessèd Savior heard me when I (D)cried; Then He threw His robe around me, (G)And He (C)led me to His (G)fold, And I’m living on the (D)hallelujah (G)side. Chorus (G)Oh, (C)glory be to Jesus, let the (G)hallelujahs roll; (G)Help me ring the Savior’s praises far and (D)wide, (G)For I’ve opened up tow’rd Hea-ven all the (C)windows of my soul, (G)And I’m living on the (D)hallelujah (G)side. Tho’ the world may sweep around me With her dazzle and her dreams, Yet I envy not her vanities and pride, For my soul looks up to heaven, Where the golden sunlight gleams, And I’m living on the hallelujah side. Not for all earth’s golden millions Would I leave this precious place, Tho’ the tempter to persuade me oft has tried, For I’m safe in God’s pavilion, Happy in His love and grace, And I’m living on the hallelujah side. Here the sun is always shining, Here the sky is always bright; ’Tis no place for gloomy Christians to abide, For my soul is filled with music And my heart with great delight, And I’m living on the hallelujah side. And upon the streets of glory, When we reach the other shore, And have safely crossed the Jordan’s rolling tide, You will find me shouting "Glory" Just outside my mansion door Where I’m living on the hallelujah side.
