1. A Savior once came from the mansions of light,
He’s just the right Savior for me;
To save my poor soul from its darkness and night,
He’s just the right Savior for me.

Refrain
He’s just the right Savior for me,
My King and Redeemer is He;
Yes, just the right Savior is Jesus,
He’s just the right Savior for me.

2. This Savior was loving, so gentle and kind,
He’s just the right Savior for me;
No sin in His life could His enemies find,
He’s just the right Savior for me. [Refrain

3. Tho’ He was despised and rejected of men,
He’s just the right Savior for me;
He carried my sorrows, my griefs and my sin,
He’s just the right Savior for me. [Refrain]

4. Once nailed to the cross, where He suffered and died,
He’s just the right Savior for me;
The blood flowing down from His hands and His side,
He’s just the right Savior for me. [Refrain]

5. Tho’ buried, He rose from the gloom of the grave,
He’s just the right Savior for me;
He’s reigning in Heaven, my soul He can save,
He’s just the right Savior for me. [Refrain]
