Representative Text

1 Although I am a sinful child,
Jesus is my Savior—
With guilt my heart is all defiled,
Jesus died for me.

I sing the love of Jesus—
He died for me, He died for me—
His precious blood can cleanse me,
Once shed on Calvary.

2 Though but a child, I’ll do His will,
Jesus is my Savior—
I’ll hear His voice, and follow still—
Jesus died for me. [Refrain]

3 Around my feet is many a snare,
Jesus is my Savior—
I’ll seek Him every day in prayer,
Jesus died for me. [Refrain]

4 And since His service I’ve begun,
Jesus is my Savior—
I’ll tell His love to every one,
Jesus died for me. [Refrain]

5 When all my duties here are done,
Jesus is my Savior—
He’ll take me nearer to His throne,
Jesus died for me. [Refrain]
