Representative Text

IF you want pardon, if you want peace,
If you want sorrow and sighing to cease,
Look up to Jesus who died on the tree
To purchase a full salvation.

Refrain:
Living beneath the shade of the cross,
Counting the jewels of earth but dross,
Cleansed in the blood that flows from his side,
Enjoying a full salvation.

2 If you want Je sus to reign in your soul,
Plunge in the fountain and you shall be whole,
Washed in the blood of the crucified one;
Enjoying a full salvation.

3 If you want boldness, take part in the fight;
If you want purity, walk in the light;
If you want liberty, shout and be free;
Enjoying a full salvation.

4 If you want holiness, cling to the cross,
Counting the riches of earth as dross;
Down at his feet you’ll be cleansed and made free;
Enjoying a full salvation.
