Representative Text

1 I came in faith to Jesus where none have sought in vain,
I’m glad salvation reaches me;
He gladly took my burden and cleansed my ev’ry stain,
I’m glad salvation reaches me.

Refrain:
I’m glad it reaches me,
Glad it reaches me,
This wonderful salvation so full and free;
I’m glad it reaches me,
Glad it reaches me,
This wonderful salvation, it reaches me.

2 I heard the gospel story, ‘twas music to my soul,
I’m glad salvation reaches me;
I came to Christ a sinner, he made me fully whole,
I’m glad salvation reaches me. [Refrain]

3 I’ll tell the Saviour’s goodness and tell his pow’r to save,
I’m glad salvation reaches me;
Thro’ him I have assurance of life beyond the grave,
I’m glad salvation reaches me. [Refrain]
