1 Have you found the Saviour precious?
More than all on earth beside,
He who gave his life to save you,
Who for your transgressions died?

Refrain:
Have you found the Saviour precious?
Can you slight such love as this,
Surely there can be no greater,
Would you give your life for his?

2 Have you found the Saviour precious?
Who for you passed thro’ the grave,
Broke the bonds of death asunder,
Have you “prov’d his pow’r to save?” [Refrain]

3 Have you found the Saviour precious?
Do you know the peace and rest,
That doth fill each soul that trusts him;
Who in his deep love is blest? [Refrain]

4 Have you found the Saviour precious?
Seek him then without delay,
Taste the sweetness of his pardon,
He will take our sins away. [Refrain]
