Representative Text

1 O love surpassing knowledge!
O grace so full and free!
I know that Jesus saves me,
And that’s enough for me!
And that’s enough for me,
And that’s enough for me,
I know that Jesus saves me,
And that’s enough for me!

2 O wonderful salvation!
From sin He makes me free!
I feel the sweet assurance,
And that’s enough for me!
And that’s enough for me,
And that’s enough for me,
I feel the sweet assurance,
And that’s enough for me!

3 O blood of Christ so precious,
Pour’d out on Calvary!
I feel its cleansing power,
And that’s enough for me!
And that’s enough for me,
And that’s enough for me,
I feel its cleansing power,
And that’s enough for me!
