Jesus, my Saviour!

A little pilgrim on life's way

Tune: [A little pilgrim on life's way]
Published in 2 hymnals

Full Text

1 A little pilgrim on life's way,
Bearing his cross from day to day,
When faint and weary, used to say,
"Jesus, my Saviour!"

2 If Satan tempted him aside,
He never on himself relied,
But grasped the shield of faith, and cried,
"Jesus, my Saviour!"

3 And looking up from what he feared,
Though far away his rest appeared,
Oh, how the thought his spirit cheered,
"Jesus, my Saviour!"

4 Thus, Lord, direct my youthful way,
Thyself to love, Thy law obey;
Then shall I praise thro' endless day
"Jesus, my Saviour!"
