1 Thank God for a perfect salvation,
That makes me today what I am,—
A sanctified child of his mercy,
Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.

O rest, sweet rest,
I rest in the arms of his love.
O rest, sweet rest,
I rest in the arms of his love.

2 He lifts me above the temptations
That once could allure me to sin,
He saves me from all my transgressions,
And cleanseth my spirit within. [Refrain]

3 I live in the constant enjoyment
Of peace that no language can tell,
Should trials in future await me,
I know with my soul ‘twill be well. [Refrain]

4 Praise God for a perfect salvation,
My faith is unclouded and bright,
My hope like an anchor is steadfast,
My mansion of glory in sight. [Refrain]
