Representative Text

1 Without holiness no man shall see the Lord,
Thus it is written in His holy word;
Ye must be purified and cleansed from sin
If the courts of heaven you would enter in.

We must be clean,
Pure in His sight,
Cleansed from all sin,
Spotless and white.

2 Without sinful spot your soul indeed must be
If you would dwell with Christ eternally;
None but the pure in heart shall enter rest,
When the books are opened for the final test. [Refrain]

3 Without holiness your life were spent in vain,
Though a profession you may yet maintain;
Naught but the life of Christ within the soul
Will avail to help you reach the final goal. [Refrain]

4 He will surely keep you pure and white within,
Give you dominion over every sin;
But if you still refuse His wondrous grace,
You will flee in terror from before His face. [Refrain]
