1 Have you found this great salvation,
Free for all of Adam’s race?
Oh! how precious just to know Him,
Come and find this “second grace.”

Hallelujah, I am living
In the center of His will,
With the sweetest milk and honey,
He my hungry soul doth fill.

2 Free for ev’ry son and daughter,
Free for whosoever will;
There is plenty, don’t stand waiting,
He your hungry soul can fill. [Chorus]

3 I was hungry in the desert,
How I longed for corn and wine,
Till I found the river Jordan,
And the land He said was mine. [Chorus]

4 In one moment I was over,
All of self I left behind,
And His blessed cleansing power,
Has removed the carnal mind. [Chorus]

5 Now I’m feasting on the riches
Of fair Canaan’s land so sweet;
I have all that you could mention,
And there’s rock beneath my feet. [Chorus]

6 Oh! that all the world might know Him,
Oh! that all His love might see;
There’s a precious flowing fountain,
Praise the Lord—it cleanseth me. [Chorus]
