Lyrics

I am saved, thank God, I know it;
From His throne in Heav’n above,
Jesus Christ—to Him I owe it—
Sought me in His wondrous love.

Refrain

I am saved, thank God, I know it;
I am saved, for Christ hath died;
Thro’ the precious blood of Jesus
I am saved and purified.

I am saved, thank God, I know it,
From my life so dark with sin;
Changed my heart, and well I know it,
Jesus Christ now dwells within.

Refrain

I am saved to endless glory—
Glory that begins below;
Saved to tell the old, old story,
Of the Christ who loved me so.

Refrain

I am saved, thank God, I know it;
Would you have salvation, too?
Jesus, loving, would bestow it—
Freely offers it to you.
