1 This full salvation just suits me,
Oh, how it saves!
It sets my soul at liberty,
Oh, how it saves!

Oh, how it saves!
Oh, how it saves!
I love, I love this full salvation,
Oh, how it saves!

2 I feel its pow’r all thro’ my soul,
Oh, how it saves!
Its cleansing waves now o’er me roll,
Oh, how it saves! [Refrain]

3 I’ll love it on my dying bed,
Oh, how it saves!
When Jordan’s waves roll o’er my head,
Oh, how it saves! [Refrain]

4 I’ll love it when I’m safe in heaven
Oh, how it saves!
With all the ransomed and forgiven,
Oh, how it saves! [Refrain]

5 I’ll love it through eternity,
Oh, how it saves!
And joy in endless liberty,
Oh, how it saves! [Refrain]
