Robert Harkness (1880–1961)


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.


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.


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


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