1 What a wonderful salvation!
For its length and breadth and height,
Far excel the grandest knowledge
Of the seraphim in light;
I can never, never fathom
Half its holy mystery,
But I know it is for sinners,
And it just suits me.

It just suits me,
It just suits me,
This wonderful salvation,
It just suits me.

2 Oh, this blessed “whosoever,”
Calling ev’ry one who will,
To the sparkling, living waters
Flowing fully, freely still;
No, I know not why He loves me,
But His blood is all my plea;
I can trust His “whosoever,”
For it just suits me. [Refrain]

3 Precious promises of Jesus,
Sweeping ev’ry human need!
For the grace of our Redeemer
Must our highest thought exceed;
To the mighty, royal store-house
Let me use the golden key,
Find the special, tender promise
That will just suit me. [Refrain]

4 What a perfect, present Saviour!
What a true and loving friend,
Can we ever praise Him rightly?
Tell how grace and glory blend?
Now the Prince of Peace is reigning,
Overruling all I see;
So, whatever lot He orders,
May it just suit me. [Refrain]
