Have You Received the Blessing?

Representative Text

1 Have you received the blessing,
Have you been saved from sin?
Since you were freely pardoned,
Have you been cleansed within?

Chorus:
Glory to Jesus forever,
He can sanctify you,
Take away carnal affection,
Create your heart anew;
Glory to Jesus forever,
He can sanctify you,
Give you the Holy Ghost power
and you with pow'r endue.

2 Have you received the blessing,
Are you in Canaan land?
Have you explored the country,
Obeying God's command? [Chorus]

3 Have you received the blessing,
Tasted the milk and wine,
Finest of wheat and honey,
Found in this land divine? [Chorus]

4 Have you received the blessing,
Keeping you sweet each day,
Giving you blessed vict'ry,
Constantly all the way? [Chorus]

5 I have received the blessing,
Heaven is in my soul,
Peace like a river floweth
Over my raptured soul. [Chorus]
