He is able…to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.@Hebrews 7:25

Jesus, save me through and through,
Save me from self-mending;
Self-salvation will not do,
Pass me through the cleansing.

Refrain

Through and through, through and through,
Jesus, make me holy;
Save me to the uttermost
All the way to glory.

Through temptations save from sin,
Self and pride subduing;
Save me through and through within,
Save me by renewing.

Refrain

Through the tempest, through the calm,
With the Master talking;
On my own belovèd’s arm,
Oft with Jesus walking.

Refrain

Through my thoughts and through my heart,
Through my flesh and spirit;
Save me, Lord, through every part,
Through Thy saving merit.

Refrain
