Representative Text

1. I know that Jesus saves me,
O wondrous, wondrous thought!
And by his Spirit leads me
Where sin can harm me not.

O I know that Jesus saves me,
Now I feel the cleansing power;
Yes, I know that Jesus saves me,
Saves and makes me whole each hour.

2. Tho' long I went not knowing
"The riches of his grace;"
His love at last has brought me
Unto this blessed place. [Chorus]

3. How blest the Spirit's witness
To have within the soul,
That by his blood, dear Jesus
Now saves and makes us whole. [Chorus]

4. How precious, in this warfare,
To feel that power within;
And in his love be lifted
Above the world and sin. [Chorus]
