1 When I read how my Savior was nailed to the cross,
For the sins of the world to atone,
Oh, I feel so unworthy such suff’ring and loss,
For I know in my heart what it means.

Refrain:
I know in my heart what it means,
Salvation, that word so divine;
His Spirit has witnessed to mine,
And I know in my heart what it means.

2 When the gospel is preached in the name of the Lord
By the Spirit sent down from above,
My soul thrills with joy at the sound of His word,
For I know in my heart what it means. [Refrain]

3 When the sweet songs of Zion are floating above,
And the saints all rejoice in the Lord,
I am happy in Jesus, and lost in His love,
For I know in my heart what it means. [Refrain]

4 And when others proclaim that salvation is free,
When they tell of the soul-cleansing blood,
I, too, can rejoice, for He’s sanctified me,
And I know in my heart what it means. [Refrain]
