Lyrics

There is sanctifying power,
Like a sweet, refreshing shower,
Waiting for each consecrated heart;
Power to cleanse us from all sin,
Power to keep us pure within,
Power for service which He will impart.

Refrain

I’m so glad, I’m so glad
For this saving, sanctifying power!
Waves of glo­ry o’er me roll,
Peace abides within my soul,
I’m so glad for this sanctifying power!

I’m so glad it reaches me,
All unworthy tho’ I be,
Overcoming grace made freely mine.
Since the Com­fort­er abides,
And within my heart resides,
I am walking in the light divine.

Refrain

This God’s will for you and me,
That we sanctified should be,
Dwelling in this land of plenteousness.
Fling your doubts and fears aside;
Boldly cross the Jordan’s tide,
And your heritage in Christ possess.

Refrain

Songs of praises let us sing
To our blessèd Lord and King
For this great sal­va­tion rich and free:
Every needed grace supplied,
Every longing satisfied,
Saved for time and for eternity.
