William J. Kirkpatrick (1838–1921)


Jesus saves me, this I know,
Underneath the crim­son flow;
He has washed away my sin,
Made me white and pure with­in.


Yes, Je­sus saves me;
Yes, Je­sus saves me;
Yes, Je­sus saves me,
And cleans­es me from sin.

Sinful though my na­ture be,
Jesus died to set me free;
Died that sin might be de­stroyed,
Died, that love might fill the void.


Failures, Je­sus ne­ver knew;
What He pro­mised, He can do;
And the al­tar sanc­ti­fies
Me, a liv­ing sac­ri­fice.


In the twink­ling of an eye,
Jesus’ blood can sanc­ti­fy;
Trustingly my all I give,
Perfect cleans­ing I re­ceive.
