Full Text

1 Praise God for a present salvation,
Praise God that He saves me just now.
I feel in my spirit the witness,
Each time as before Him I bow.

He saves me just now, hallelujah!
He saves me just now, this I know;
I mean to be true, and go all the way thro’,
For His blood keeps me whiter than snow.

2 Praise God for the wonderful moment
When all of my sins rolled away.
But praise Him still more that He keeps me,
And gives me the witness today. [Refrain]

3 And no on the heights I am standing,
And looking behind me I see,
How wondrous His grace manifested,
Was always sufficient for me. [Refrain]
