1 I’ve found a friend, the best of all,
Jesus, the wonderful Savior!
He heard my weak but earnest call,
Jesus, the wonderful Savior!
When lost in sin He heard my cry,
To earth He came for me to die;
And now He’s reigning up on high,
Is this wonderful, wonderful Savior!

Wonderful, wonderful Savior!
Wonderful, wonderful Savior!
Of Him I’ll sing, and ever will cling,
To this wonderful, wonderful Savior!

2 With outcast sinners He did eat,
Jesus, the wonderful Savior!
And washed His own disciples’ feet,
Jesus, the wonderful Savior!
Tho’ without sin, for us He died,
On Calv’ry’s cross was crucified;
Buried, arose, and glorified,
Was this wonderful, wonderful Savior! [Refrain]

3 For us He suffered want and shame,
Jesus, the wonderful Savior!
We’re saved thro’ faith in His dear name,
Jesus, the wonderful Savior!
No other name for sinners giv’n,
No other name in earth or Heav’n;
But all must come, who’d be forgiv’n,
To this wonderful, wonderful Savior! [Refrain]
