I think the one you are looking for is Freely, Freely

God forgave my sin in Jesus' name.
I've been born again in Jesus' name
And in Jesus' name I come to you
To share his love as he told me to.

He said 'Freely, freely you have received;, freely, freely give.
Go in my name, and because you believe others will know that I live.

All pow'r is giv'n in Jesus' name
in earth and heav'n in jesus name
And in Jesus' name I come to you
To share his pow'r as he told me to.

He said 'Freely, freely you have received;, freely, freely give.
Go in my name, and because you believe others will know that I live.

God gives us life in Jesus' name
he lives in us in Jesus' name
And in Jesus' name I come to you
To share his peace as he told me to.

this is a great hymn.. We sang it in church on 8-8-2010. It touches my heart what Jesus did for us.  We should go out and let others know about his grace and love for us.

Where can I get the sheet music for this?
Posted:  26 May 2013 19:21
I have a handwritten lead sheet that I wrote out 20 years ago. I don't know where I got it - I may have transcribed it so I could teach to the group of singer I had at the time. It is the lyrics, melody and chords. If you would like a copy, you can e-mail me at asaydf@gmx.com

I should have looked in my old Methodist hymnal before I made the last post: it's #389.

I had the priviledge of being part of `Come Together` in the 70s in the UK.  Wonderful songs.

I really love this hymn

I first heard it being sung by the Super classically singing voices of Charles and Paula Slagle now in a teaching ministry- I first heard them in PTL Tammy and Jim Bakker in 1977 I believe here is the history of the song:
Author: Carol Owens
Owens, Carol Sue. (El Reno, Oklahoma, October 30, 1931-- ). Foursquare. Attended San Jose State College, San Jose, California; Cathedral School of the Bible, Oakland, Calif. With her husband James (Jimmy), she composed Christian musicals.

I used to sing this in the RLDS (Reorganized Church of Latter Day Saints) church I went to as a kid. I don't know why but this song has stuck with me through the years.

The hymn, "Where He Leads Me (I will follow)" is in, or used to be in, a lot of hymnals. The Southern Baptist's "Broadman Hymnal" and several later editions all had it.

Here's a link to Cyber Hymnal dot org, where you can view the lyrics and listen to a MIDI score.


They _may_ have a feature where you can get the score for the song, but I don't know.

I pray the Lord's blessings on your efforts! Especially with the Easter season, songs like "I Can Hear My Savior Calling" have a tone very applicable to "passion week" and Easter itself. Think of what our Lord did for us--oh, how we need truly to hear Him calling to us.

I was privileged back in the early 70's  to sing in this musical (Come Together) when it was performed at Angelus Temple.  The Second Chapter of Acts provided the music.  Pat Boone sang the solo on this song,  This song was in the key of F any good piano player should be able to work it out.

I was a teenager when I heard this beautiful Christian tune at church
I remember becoming so emotional the second this tune played that I immediately broke down and wept.
these tears I shed that first night were not of hate, but rather tears of repentance and love for our dear lord Jesus Christ
I thank Carol Owens from the bottom of my heart for writing such a beautiful piece of christian music

I remember singing this with my mom in church...
