1 Jesus saves me to-day, and He saves me alway,
While I trust in Jehovah, my Lord;
Never need I to fear, for He ever is near,
And He saves me to-day by His word.

Jesus saves me to-day, hallelujah!
Jesus saves, and He keeps me alway,
Bless His name for His love,
That He came from above,
Jesus saves and He keeps me to-day.

2 I will sing of the Lord, for He saves me to-day,
And He leads me in pastures so green;
By the waters so still, doing God's holy will,
While His blood that was shed keeps me clean. [Chorus]

3 I will come with thanksgiving and make a glad noise,
Unto Him be the praise evermore;
Jesus saves me to-day, and He'll keep me alway,
Would to God I had known it before. [Chorus]

4 'Tis a wonderful tho't that the Savior has brought
Full salvation for all who believe;
He will save you to-day, and He'll keep you alway,
If you only His word will receive. [Chorus]
