1 Long I sought the holy, pentecostal blessing,
Long for purity I prayed, yet undismayed;
All was on the altar laid, full provision had been made,
I am glad that I have found Him in His fullness!

Refrain:
I am glad that I have found Him in His fullness,
And the cleansing stream of Calv’ry still doth flow;
Brighter burns the holy flame,
Glory, glory to His name,
I am glad that I have found Him in His fullness!

2 Storms of life may sweep in fury all around me,
Oft my soul is bowed beneath a heavy load;
Still the promises I claim, fully trusting in His name,—
I am glad that I have found Him in His fullness! [Refrain]

3 Faith is growing stronger as I daily trust Him,
Inward foes are banished from within my breast;
Perfect love now dwells within, Jesus cleanses from all sin,
I am glad that I have found Him in His fullness! [Refrain]

4 Soon I’ll leave my toiling here for yonder city,
Soon the lights of heaven’s splendor I’ll behold;
There through countless ages long I will sing redemption’s song,—
I am glad that I have found Him in His fullness! [Refrain]
