Representative Text

1 His name yields the richest perfume
And sweeter than music His voice;
His presence disperses my gloom,
And makes all within me rejoice.

Chorus:
I believe, Jesus save,
And His blood washes whiter than show;
I believe, Jesus save,
And His blood washes whiter than show.

2 Now I know Jesus saves from all sin,
For His spirit is witness to me;
I have asked Him again and again,
And I know that He now sets me free. [Chorus]

3 O, how sweet must it be to be there
With loved ones who have gone on before
And with them the Glory we’ll share
With Jesus to dwell evermore.

Second chorus:
Jesus saves! sanctifies,
And His blood washes whiter than show;
Jesus saves! sanctifies,
And His blood washes whiter than show.
