Lyrics

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

Refrain

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

I feel its power all thro’ my soul,
Oh, how it saves!
Its cleansing waves now o’er me roll,
Oh, how it saves!

Refrain

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

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

I’ll love it thro’ eternity,
Oh, how it saves!
And joy in endless liberty,
Oh, how it saves!
