Representative Text

1 Saved, and saved alone by grace;
Saved to see my Saviour’s face;
Saved from Satan’s iron yoke,
And the law that I had broke.

2 Saved from sin, that hateful foe
That has millions plunged in woe,
Saved from all its reigning power;
Saved to serve my lusts no more.

3 Saved, nor can I be condemned;
Jesus Christ, the sinner’s Friend,
Took my place and vengeance bore,
Me to save for evermore.

4 Death, nor hell, nor world, nor sin,
Foes without, nor foes within,
Ever can my soul destroy;
I am saved eternally.
