1 I’m happy in Jesus and tell it I must,
For he has redeemed me, I know;
My sins were like crimson, my heart was defiled—
He washed me as white as the snow.

I’m singing because I am free,
And Jesus is reigning in me;
Hallelujah! I’m happy since in him I trust,
And sing it and tell it I must.

2 I’m filled with the Spirit and washed in the blood,
King Jesus is living in me;
The glory of heaven beams down on my way,
I’m sanctified, happy and free. [Refrain]

3 Sometimes I am tempted by Satan and sin,
Sometimes I am weary and worn;
But e’en in my darkness God’s promise is true,
And gladness returns with the morn. [Refrain]

4 So onward I travel to heaven above,
Through glory or sadness so drear;
By faith in his promise I’ll live for the Lord,
And sing till the clouds disappear. [Refrain]
