This song was first sung in Paul Ra­der’s 1919 ev­an­gel­istic cru­sade at Mas­sey Hall in To­ron­to, Ca­na­da.

Walking the aisles sell­ing sou­ve­nir song books (one of the first to con­tain the song) was a young man, out of work, and sunk in the depths of dis­cour­age­ment. It was Os­wald Smith.

When the 3,400 at­ten­dees sang un­til, in his words, it seemed as though they would lift the roof, it great­ly en­cour­aged him with the thought that God was not go­ing to put me on the shelf.


Saved! saved! saved! my sins are all for­giv’n;
Christ is mine! I’m on my way to Heav’n;
Once a guil­ty sin­ner, lost, un­done,
Now a child of God, saved thro’ His Son.


Saved! I’m saved thro’ Christ, my all in all;
Saved! I’m saved, what­ev­er may be­fall;
He died up­on the cross for me,
He bore the aw­ful pe­nal­ty;
And now I’m saved eter­nal­ly—
I’m saved! saved! saved!

Saved! saved! saved! by grace and grace alone;
Oh, what won­drous love to me was shown,
In my stead Christ Je­sus bled and died,
Bore my sins, for me was cru­ci­fied.


Saved! saved! saved! oh, joy be­yond com­pare!
Christ my life, and I His con­stant care;
Yielding all and trust­ing Him alone,
Living now each mo­ment as His own.
