Representative Text

1 I am wondrously saved, hallelujah to God!
I am wondrously cleansed in the dear Saviour’s blood;
I am wondrously kept by the pow’r of my Lord,
Hallelujah! I’m happy today.

Hallelujah! I’m happy today,
All my burden is taken away;
In my Saviour I trust,
And I sing, for I must,
Hallelujah! I’m happy today.

2 I am constantly filled with a wonderful peace,
And I daily am fed at the table of grace;
I am dwelling each hour in the light of his face,
Hallelujah! I’m happy today. [Refrain]

3 I am wondrously helped ev’ry drearisome hour,
And my Master himself is the source of all pow’r;
And I joyfully sing, tho’ the storm clouds may low’r,
Hallelujah! I’m happy today. [Refrain]
