Representative Text

1 Christ has shed His blood for me,
O what a wonderful Saviour!
Died my soul from sin to free,
O what a wonderful Saviour!
Greater love was never known,
Greater mercy never shown,
Freely does His blood atone,
O what a wonderful Saviour!

2 I have lost my load of sin,
O what a wonderful Saviour!
Now I have sweet peace within,
O what a wonderful Saviour!
He who calmly walked the wave,
Has the mighty pow’r to save,
Shows a light beyond the grave,
O what a wonderful Saviour!

3 Now my heart doth sing for joy,
O what a wonderful Saviour!
Christ shall all my song employ,
O what a wonderful Saviour!
He my guide, my strength and stay,
All my tears has wiped away;
I will serve Him ev’ry day,
O what a wonderful Saviour!
