1 Yes, Jesus has saved me, O blest be His name!
Has saved me from sin and its power;
I came a poor sinner confessing my guilt;
I asked for forgiveness;
I cried "If Thou wilt!"
And He saved me that very same hour.

I praise Him for grace that was sent from above,
To save a lost sinner from hell.
I praise Him for mercy, I praise Him for love,
Too wondrous for mortal to tell.

2 I hungered for righteousness, blest be His name!
He answered me, "Thou shalt be filled!"
I yielded Him everything man doth desire;
He showed me corruption,
Then cleansed me with fire,
And His love thro’ my whole being thrilled. [Refrain]

3 He keeps me so sweetly thro’ sorrow and pain,
That I praise Him by day and by night;
No cloud is so black that His love cannot fill;
He hides me in darkness,
He holdeth me still,
Till the gloom softly fades into light. [Refrain]

4 He leadeth me gently, and woos me along
To heights ever looming above;
I gaze in His face while I walk the lone way,
And winds that are wintry,
Grow balmy as May,
’Neath the breath of His infinite love. [Refrain]
