Representative Text

1 One look at the cross and the crucified One,
One look, and my soul was made free;
Tho’ once I was blind to the glory of God,
He touched me and now I can see!

Refrain:
I know I am saved, hallelujah!
I know I am saved by His grace;
And every transgression is under the blood,
My soul is now filled with His praise.

2 The fetters that held me His hand has removed,
With wings as an eagle I rise;
No longer to grovel in dust of the earth,
My hope reaches up to the skies. [Refrain]

3 My heart is now singing the song of the saved,
The Spirit doth witness within;
The blood of atonement, once shed on the cross,
Is keeping me free from all sin. [Refrain]
