1 Come, justified soul, to the cross,
The fullness is waiting for thee;
The will of the Lord is revealed in His Word,
That thou shouldst now sanctified be.

Come, seek it today,
No longer delay,
Before Him in humbleness bow;
And low at the cross,
Count all things but loss,
Oh, come and be sanctified now.

2 Why harbor a foe in thy breast?
Why have such a battle within?
Oh, come and be blest with a perfect soul-rest—
A rest of full freedom from sin. [Refrain]

3 The veil of the holiest place
Is rent and wide open for thee;
A new living way giveth entrance today
To grace that is boundless and free. [Refrain]

4 The blood of the Savior will cleanse
From all the inherited sin;
Then grace to thy heart will the Spirit impart,
Thus make and keep holy within. [Refrain]
