Representative Text

1 I have found the Saviour precious,
He has fill’d my soul with cheer;
I have found Him kind and gracious,
And would tell it far and near.

Refrain:
Come, O come, dear friends, to Jesus,
Since His love is full and free;
In His hand is life eternal,
There’s enough for you and me.

2 I have found the Saviour precious,
He is fairest of the fair;
He is chief among ten-thousand,
O that all His grace may share. [Chorus]

3 I have found the Saviour precious,
Never failing in my need;
For my hungry soul providing,
Jesus is a friend indeed. [Chorus]

4 I have found the Saviour precious,
Rock of ages, cleft for all;
O then find that place of safety,
For there’s room for great and small. [Chorus]
