1. I'm delighted to know of this wonderful love
That my Jesus has given to me;
Oh my heart is now filled at the thought of His will!
And His love, O His love makes me free.

Oh, the freedom so sweet and the glory so bright
For the night has all passed from my soul;
And my heart is aglow, for I'm whiter than snow
I am saved by the blood and made whole.

2.Yes, the vict'ry's complete through our Lord Jesus Christ
Who hath suffered and died for our sins;
And in Him we have rest, who hath loved us the best
And His life is now felt in our veins. [Refrain]

3.O how sweet is the rest that the Savior doth give
To all those that do come unto Him.
Yes, my joy is complete, for I'm now at His feet
And His blood cleanseth me from all sin. [Refrain]

4. O what joy to my soul is the dear, blessed Lord
He is reigning within me so sweet!
And His life giving stream thro' my spirit doth gleam,
And it makes all within me complete. [Refrain]
