Representative Text

1 Oh! I am so glad that salvation is free,
And Jesus will pardon a sinner like me;
He asks not for silver, He asks not for gold,
The poorest may enter the good Shepherd’s fold.

Chorus:
Salvation is free, for you and for me,
The Master has riches untold;
Salvation is free, for you and for me:
The poorest may enter His fold.

2 Oh! I am so glad that our Saviour is King
And needs not the riches the wealthy would bring;
His treasures are endless—His riches untold—
The poorest may share in the wealth of His fold. [Chorus]

3 Oh! I am so glad that a sinner may live,
And share in the riches this Monarch can give;
And thro’ years eternal His beauty behold;
Just over beyond in the city of gold. [Chorus]
