Representative Text

1 I had heard the gospel call,
Offering pardon free for all,
And I hearkened to the blessed invitation;
Laid my sins at Jesus’ feet,
Tasted there redemption sweet,
And he saved me with an uttermost salvation.

Jesus saves, sweetly saves,
Jesus saves me with an uttermost salvation;
Though I cannot tell you how, Jesus sweetly saves me now,
With a full, and free, an uttermost salvation.

2 Now the load of sin is gone,
And by faith I travel on,
And I rest no longer under condemnation;
For the blood has been applied,
And my soul is satisfied
With this full, and free, this uttermost salvation. [Refrain]

3 From the mire and from the clay,
Jesus too my feet away,
And he placed them on the rock the sure Foundation;
Whether now I live or die,
This shall be my constant cry,
Jesus saves me with an uttermost salvation. [Refrain]

4 When I reach the golden street,
And the loved ones gladly meet,
The redeemed which came out of great tribulation,
Having washed their garments white,
Praising God both day and night
For this full, and free, this uttermost salvation. [Refrain]
