Representative Text

1 I know who came to die for me,
My soul to seek my hope to be;
I know who pleads for me above,
My advocate, in boundless love.

Refrain:
It is the Lord my Savior,
It is the Lord my Savior,
It is the Lord my Savior,
In whom I now believe.

2 I know who gives permission sweet
To lay my burdens at his feet,
I know who will not turn away
When in my faith I kneel to pray. [Refrain]

3 I know who dwells within my heart,
His peace and Spirit to impart;
I know who guides my steps aright,
And keeps me ever in his sight. [Refrain]

4 I know who holds salvation’s cup,
And as I drink my faith looks up;
I know who has a place for me
In mansions by the crystal sea! [Refrain]
