Representative Text

1 My sins are forgiven, my soul is set free,
Hallelujah!
My Jesus redeemed me, His own will I be,
Hallelujah!

Refrain:
Oh, hallelujah! hallelujah!
I’m so glad to tell!
Oh, hallelujah! hallelujah!
With my soul ‘tis well.

2 Once far from my Savior, I’m near Him today,
Hallelujah!
He points me to Heaven and leads all the way,
Hallelujah! [Refrain]

3 His blood bought my pardon, and cleanses within,
Hallelujah!
A crown thro’ His mercy I’m hoping to win,
Hallelujah! [Refrain]

4 My inbred corruption is all taken out,
Hallelujah!
I’m perfectly free, I can sing, lead and shout,
Hallelujah! [Refrain]

5 Our army’s advancing, the bugle sounds shrill,
Hallelujah!
Fresh orders from Jesus our spirits now thrill,
Hallelujah! [Refrain]

6 The glory-dawn breaketh, our Savior is near,
Hallelujah!
We hope to be ready when He shall appear,
Hallelujah! [Refrain]
