During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

I am saved, I am saved, Jesus bids me go free

I am saved, I am saved, Jesus bids me go free

Published in 14 hymnals

Representative Text

1 I am saved, I am saved,
Jesus bids me go free;
He has bought with a price
Even me, even me!

Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Hallelujah to my Saviour!
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Hallelujah, amen!

2 Wondrous love, wondrous love,
Now the gift I receive;
I have rest in his word,
I believe, I believe!

3 I am cleansed, I am cleansed,
I am whiter than snow;
He is mighty to save,
This I know, this I know!

4 I was weak, I am strong
In the power of his might;
And my darkness he’s turned
Into light, into light!
