Full Salvation! Full Salvation!
Lo! the fountain opened wide
Streams through ev’ry land and nation
From the Saviour’s wounded side.
Full Salvation! Full Salvation!
Streams an endless crimson tide.


Oh! the glorious revelation !
See the cleansing current flow;
Washing stains of condemnation
Whiter than the driven snow;
Full Salvation! Full Salvation!
Oh the rapturous bliss to know!


Love’s resistless current sweeping
All the regions deep within;
Thought and wish and senses keeping
Now, and every instant clean;
Full Salvation! Full Salvation!
From the guilt and power of sin.


Life immortal, heaven descending,
Lo! my heart’s the Spirit’s shrine!
God and man in oneness blending
Oh, what fellowship is mine!
Full Salvation! Full Salvation!
Raised in Christ to Life Divine.


Care and doubting, gloom and sorrow,
Fear and grief are mine no more;
Faith knows nought of dark tomorrow
For my Saviour goes before.
Full Salvation! Full Salvation!
Full and free for evermore
