Representative Text

1 Jesus is a loving Saviour,
He will peace and pardon give;
If you long for full salvation,
Only look to him and live.

He will save you, he will save you,
Save you by his love and pow’r;
He is willing to receive you,
He is willing, doubt no more.

2 Earthly friends may oft forsake you
In your time of greatest need,
But there’s One who’ll never leave you,
One who is a friend indeed. [Refrain]

3 When your path seems dark and dreary,
And your lot so hard to bear;
Only trust your loving Saviour,
He will ev’ry burden share. [Refrain]

4 When our warfare here is ended,
When we reach that peaceful shore,
Then we’ll praise our dear Redeemer,
Praise him there forevermore. [Refrain]
