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
Words: William J. Pearson, in the Salvation Army’s War Cry, August 4, 1881.

Jesus, save me through and through,
Save me from self-mending;
Self-salvation will not do,
Pass me through the cleansing.
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.
Through the tempest, through the calm,
With the Master talking;
On my own belovèd’s arm,
Oft with Jesus walking.
Through my thoughts and through my heart,
Through my flesh and spirit;
Save me, Lord, through every part,
Through Thy saving merit.
