Representative Text

1 No work, no merit of my own;
I know that Jesus saves me;
The pow’r, the glory, His alone,
I know that Jesus saves me.

Refrain:
In Him I trust, for Him I sing,
All glory to my risen King;
While to His blood-stained cross I cling,
I know that Jesus saves me.

2 The precious blood is on my soul,
I know that Jesus saves me;
And ev’ry care on Him I roll,
I know that Jesus saves me. [Refrain]

3 For service pure and glad and free,
I know that Jesus saves me;
For blessed, joyful liberty,
I know that Jesus saves me. [Refrain]

4 ‘Tis only in his strength I stand,
I know that Jesus saves me;
I’m kept by His almighty hand,
I know that Jesus saves me. [Refrain]
