Representative Text

1 My heart is fill’d with joy today,
I know that Jesus saves me;
His presence brightens all my way,
I know that Jesus saves me.

Refrain:
He saves me, He saves me,
I know He saves me now;
Oh, praise His name,
His precious name,
I know that Jesus saves me!

2 When peace is shining in my soul,
I know that Jesus saves me;
When sorrow’s waves around me roll,
I know that Jesus saves me. [Refrain]

3 In calm or storm, in shine or shade,
I know that Jesus saves me;
In hope fulfilled or good delayed,
I know that Jesus saves me. [Refrain]

4 No other joy can equal this,
I know that Jesus saves me;
Since He is mine and I am His,
I know that Jesus saves me. [Refrain]

5 His blood doth for my sins atone,
I know that Jesus saves me;
His love receives me as His own,
I know that Jesus saves me. [Refrain]
