Full Text

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

Hiding beneath the shade of the cross,
Counting the jewels of earth but dross;
Cleansed in the blood that flowed from his side,
Enjoying a full salvation.

2 If you want Jesus 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. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]

4 If you want holiness, cling to the cross,
Counting the riches of earth as but dross;
Down at His feet you’ll be wealthy and wise,
Enjoying a full salvation. [Refrain]
