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.


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.


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


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