O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
You ask me how I know that Jesus saves me,
How I know that all my sins are white as snow;
You ask me how I know that He forgave me;
Now listen, I must tell you how I know.

You ask me how I know that He redeemed me,
And how I received the peace no gold can buy;
How from the guilt and pow'r of sin He saved me,
Made me an heir to mansions in the sky.

And now, as thro' the world I go rejoicing,
I am tellin what a Saviour dwells within;
How I plung'd into the cleansing, crimson fountain,
And Jesus wash'd my soul from ev'ry sin.

Chorus:
I was there when it happen'd, and I ought to know,
His Spirit burning in me, set my heart aglow;
So I praise the Lord today,
He has washed my sins away;
I was there when it happen'd, and I ought to know.
