Representative Text

1 I love my Saviour, his heart is good,
He has loved me o’er and o’er;
He sought me wand’ring, I’m saved by his blood,
And I love him more and more.

Jesus is good to me,
Jesus is good to me;
So good! so good!
Jesus is good to my soul.

2 He calls, I rise, and he maketh me whole,—
How fond his tender embrace!
He cleanseth and keeps me and blesses my soul—
My day the smile of his face. [Refrain]

3 I want to love him with all my heart,
Tho’ all its powers are small;
I will not keep from him any part,
For he is worthy of all. [Refrain]

4 He’s good to me in my sorrow’s night,
He’s good in the tempest’s roll;
He bringeth from darkness into light,—
With joy he filleth my soul. [Refrain]
