Trusting in Jesus, my Savior divine,
I have the witness that still He is mine;
Great are the blessings He giveth to me:
Oh, I am happy as mortal can be.

Refrain

I am redeemed, and I know it full well,
Saved by His grace, I with Him shall dwell;
I am redeemed, and the child of His love,
Heir to a glorious crown above.

Once I was far from my Savior and King,
Now He has taught me His mercy to sing;
Peace in believing He giveth to me:
Oh, I am happy as mortal can be.

Refrain

Trusting in Jesus, oh, what should I fear?
Nothing can harm me when He is so near!
Sweet is the promise He giveth to me:
Oh, I am happy as mortal can be.

Refrain

If while a stranger I journey below,
Filled with His fullness such rapture I know,
What will the bliss of eternity be,
When in His beauty the King I shall see?

Refrain
