Full Salvation

Representative Text

1 Full salvation, full salvation,
Lo! the fountain, opened wide,
Streams through every land and nation
From the Saviour’s wounded side!
Full salvation, full salvation,
Streams an endless crimson tide.

2 O the glorious revelation!
See the cleansing current flow,
Washing stains of condemnation
Whiter than the driven snow.
Full salvation, full salvation,
O the rapturous bliss to know!

3 Love’s resistless current sweeping
All the regions deep within,
Thought and wish and senses keeping
Now, and every instant, clean.
Full salvation, full salvation,
From the guilt and power of sin.

4 Life immortal, Heaven descending,
Lo! my heart the Spirit’s shrine;
God and man in oneness blending,
O what Fellowship is mine!
Full salvation, full salvation,
Raised in Christ to life divine.

5 Care and doubting, gloom and sorrow,
Fear and shame are mine no more;
Faith knows naught of dark tomorrow,
For my Saviour goes before.
Full salvation, full salvation,
Full and free for evermore.
