Jesus, my Savior

Representative Text

1 Jesus, my Saviour, to Thee I would flee,
Whither for rest could I go but to Thee?
Driven and tossed like a wreck on the wave,
Jesus, my Saviour, Thou only canst save.

2 Jesus, my Saviour, to Thee do I flee,
Whither for rest could I go but to Thee?
Praising my Father for all He has given,
Onward I march to my mansion in heaven.

3 Friend of the friendless, I come to be blest,
Joy of the joyless, in Thee I find rest;
Jesus who died upon Calvary’s Cross,
Mine is the blessing, but Thine was the loss.

4 Trusting Thee fully, Lord, lest I should fail,
Counting on Thee for the power to prevail;
Learning of Thee every step of the way,
Singing of Thee as I journey each day.
