Representative Text

1 In Christ is full redemption found,
What a blessed salvation!
His praises thro' my soul resound,
What a blessed salvation!

What a blessed salvation
in Christ, my Redeemer!
What a blessed salvation
for sinners like me.

2 Eternal life thro' Jesus' blood,
What a blessed salvation!
Come, sink beneath the crimson flood,
What a blessed salvation! [Chorus]

3 He takes my crimson stains away,
What a blessed salvation!
He helps and keeps me ev'ry day,
What a blessed salvation! [Chorus]

4 Sweet peace amid the world's rude strife,
What a blessed salvation!
Triumphant joy beyond this life,
What a blessed salvation! [Chorus]

5 His everlasting grace proclaim,
What a blessed salvation!
Thro' endless days we'll sing his name,
What a blessed salvation! [Chorus]
