O blessèd tide that cleanses sin,
Thy mighty billows o’er me roll;
I feel the power and joy within,
I have the glory in my soul.

Refrain

I have the glory in my soul,
I have the glory in my soul,
I feel the power and joy within,
I have the glory in my soul.

My aching heart has known Thy skill,
From every wound I’m now made whole;
With perfect love, I dread no ill,
I have the glory in my soul.

Refrain

Freedom from sins and doubts and fears—
I long have sought to reach this goal;
Thy blessèd love has dried my tears,
I have the glory in my soul.

Refrain

The world and all its trifling joys
No more my spirit shall console;
Thy comfort comes to me; tho’ weak,
I have the glory in my soul.

Refrain
