27. Precious Saviour

1 Precious Saviour, I will praise Thee,
Thine and only Thine, I am;
For the cleansing blood has reached me;
Glory, glory to the Lamb!

Glory, glory, Jesus saves me!
Blessed be His holy name;
For the cleansing blood has reached me,
Hallelujah to the Lamb!

2 Long my yearning heart was trying
To enjoy this perfect rest;
But when I gave over “trying.”—
Simply trusting, I was blest. [Refrain]

3 I am trusting every moment
In the precious blood applied;
Calmly resting at the fountain,
Dwelling at my Saviour’s side. [Refrain]

4 Consecrated to Thy service,
I would live and die for Thee,
Gladly tell the wondrous story
Of salvation full and free. [Refrain]
