Representative Text

1. Cleansed in our Savior’s precious blood,
Filled with the fullness of our God,
Walking by faith the path He trod,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

2. Leaning our heads on Jesus’ breast,

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

5. O what a Savior we have found!
Well may we make the world resound,
With one continual joyous sound,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
