W. Howard Doane


Jesus, save me through and through,
Save me from self-mending;
Self-salvation will not do,
Pass me through the cleansing.


Through and through, through and through,
Jesus, make me holy;
Save me to the uttermost
All the way to glory.

Through temptations save from sin,
Self and pride subduing;
Save me through and through within,
Save me by renewing.


Through the tempest, through the calm,
With the Master talking;
On my own belovèd’s arm,
Oft with Jesus walking.


Through my thoughts and through my heart,
Through my flesh and spirit;
Save me, Lord, through every part,
Through Thy saving merit.
