Tune: Arranged by John G. McCurry, 1855
Lyrics: J. W. Bassett, 1950
Meter: Common Meter Half (8.6)
I know that Jesus saves me now,
He heard my feeble prayer,
And in the great redemption plan
I now so freely share
I now so freely live
And bye and bye we’ll meet Him there
And see Him as He is.
So shall our songs and pray’rs ascend
To Him who saves us there.
