1 I have found the Savior precious,
And I love Him more and more;
He has rolled away my burden,
And my mourning days are o’er;
I have found the Savior precious,
And I find Him precious still;
All my life is consecrated
To His service and His will.

Refrain:
I have taken up the cross,
And will never lay it down
Till I see His face in glory,
And receive a starry crown.

2 I have found the Savior precious,
And, wherever I may go,
I will bear the royal standard,
And its colors I will show;
I am ready, if He calls me,
In the battle front to stand;
I am ready—yes, and waiting—
To fulfill my Lord’s command. [Refrain]

3 I have found the Savior precious;
Hallelujah! praise His name!
To a mansion in His kingdom
Thro’ His grace the right I claim.
I have found the savior precious;
He has prov’d my dearest Friend;
And my faith can trust His promise
Of protection to the end. [Refrain]
