Full Text

1 Christ is my portion forever,
He is my Saviour from sin;
He is my blessed salvation,
I have the witness within.

I have the witness within,
Jesus now saves me from sin;
In his heart I’ve a place,
I am saved by his grace,
And I have the witness within.

2 He is my fortress and tower,
He is my guide and my King;
He is my Shepherd, my Keeper
Joyfully now I can sing. [Refrain]

3 Praise to the One who redeems me,
Praise to my crucified Lord;
Now I am saved, hallelujah!
Praise for the wonderful word. [Refrain]
