 EAE
There are some people, who say we cannot tell,
 B7EAE
Whether we are saved or, whether all is well;     
n.c E E7 A
They say we only can hope and, trust that it is so,
 B7EAE
But I was there when it happened and I guess I ought to know.     

Chorus
 B7
Yes, I know when Jesus saved me (yes, He saved my soul),
 E
The very moment He forgave me (yes, He made me whole);
 F#7
He took away my heavy burden (yes, He took my sin and),
 B7
And He gave me peace within (gave me peace within).
 E
Satan can't make me doubt it (he can't make me doubt it),
 E7A
 It's real and I'm gonna shout it (I'm gonna shout it);
 B7
'Cause I was there when it happened (oh, my Lord),
 EAE
and I guess I ought to know (yes, I ought to know).

 EAE
Now, I don't care who tells me, salvation is not real,
 B7EAE
Though the world may argue, that we cannot feel;     
n.c E E7 A
The heavy burdens lifted and the vile sins go,
 B7EAE
But I was there when it happened and I guess I ought to know.
