1 There’s a blessed and triumphant song:
Holiness forevermore;
It is sung by the mighty blood-washed throng,
Holiness forevermore.

Holiness forevermore!
Holiness forevermore!
We will sing it! shout it!
Preach it and live it,
Holiness forevermore!

2 We will praise the Lord for victory,
Holiness forevermore;
From the carnal mind we now are free,
Holiness forevermore. [Chorus]

3 From this standard we will not depart,
Holiness forevermore;
‘Tis the song of the purified in heart,
Holiness forevermore. [Chorus]

4 We will shout our glorious liberty,
Holiness forevermore;
We shall sing it by the crystal sea,
Holiness forevermore. [Chorus]
