William J. Kirkpatrick (1838–1921)


I am glad, oh, so glad,
That to Je­sus I came;
He has par­doned my sins,
I can now praise His name.


Hallelujah, Je­sus saves me,
With a per­fect sal­va­tion;
Hallelujah, hal­le­lu­jah,
Jesus saves me just now.

Oh, the full­ness of joy
My Re­deem­er to know,
And to feel that His blood
Makes me whit­er than snow.


Perfect peace in my heart
Jesus now gives to me,
From all fear­ing and doubt­ing,
My spir­it is free.


Savior, keep me, I pray,
Ever keep me Thine own,
Till I join the glad song
Of the blest round Thy throne.
