Lyrics

I am on my way to glory,
Free from all my load of sin;
I am blest with full salvation,
With my Lord enthroned within.

Refrain

Hallelujah! I am saved,
I have glory in my soul!
Thro’ the precious blood of Christ our Lord,
I am every whit made whole.

I have on the wedding garment,
I am now prepared to go;
Hallelujah! Jesus saves me,
Saves me fully, this I know.

Refrain

I am happy, oh so happy,
I can only praise the Lord,
For my tongue can not explain it,
Glory, glory be to God!

Refrain

Come to Jesus, taste the pleasure
To be found alone in Him;
There is joy beyond all measure,
In the pardon of all sin.
