Representative Text

1 Jesus, my Savior,
Grant me Thy favor,
Break ev’ry fetter,
Set my soul free;
My all-confiding,
In Thee abiding,
Safely I’m hiding
Ever in Thee.

Jesus, my Savior,
My dear Redeemer,
Grants me His favor,
Speaks to my heart;
“I have redeemed thee,
Suffered to win thee,
Now I am coming,
Peace to impart.”

2 Jesus, my Savior,
My Rock, my Shelter,
My great Protector,
And my High Tow’r!
For me He careth,
My grief He shareth,
My burden beareth,
Keeps by His pow’r. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, my Savior,
My trusted Anchor,
My only Rescue
From billows wild;
Tho’ storms are sweeping,
Waking or sleeping
My Lord is keeping
His blood-bought child. [Refrain]
