LyricsCan we know that Jesus saves us; can we know?
Be assured each moment, everywhere we go?
Can we know our sins are all forgiven, washed away?
That our path is leading to God’s perfect day?
Oh yes we can know,
can know our sins are washed away.
We can know, can know our sins are washed away.
Chapter one verse twelve of John,
is the ground we stand upon.
Yes we know that Jesus saves us; yes we know.
Be assured each moment, everywhere we go.
Yes we know our sins are all forgiven, washed away,
That our path is leading to God’s perfect day!
