Representative Text

1 Jesus is waiting His grace to bestow,
Sin “red like crimson” He makes white as snow;
Loving us freely, His life-blood He gave;
Blessed Redeemer—He’s mighty to save!

Refrain:
Mighty to save, mighty to save—
Jesus is mighty to save!
Mighty to save, mighty to save—
Jesus is mighty to save!

2 Standing alone in the strife we shall fail,
Close to our Leader His might will prevail;
Or if a blessing for others we crave,
Look up to Jesus—He’s mighty to save! [Refrain]

3 Take Him the burden that weighs on your heart,
Take Him the trouble, He’ll comfort impart;
Held by His hand we can walk on the wave;
Look up to Jesus—He’s mighty to save! [Refrain]

4 Up from the valley the darkness is gone,
When Jesus brings there the beauty of dawn;
Vict’ry, glad vict’ry, we sing o’er the grave!
Glory to Jesus—He’s mighty to save! [Refrain]
