Jesus Savior, I Have Turned

Representative Text

1 Jesus Saviour, I have turned to Thee,
Earth no pleasure longer holds for me,
I would now but heaven's glories see,
I would wholly consecrated be.

Jesus Saviour, unto Thee I come,
Keep me sweetly, never let me roam,
Jesus Saviour, unto Thee I come,
Take me safely to my heavn'ly home.

2 Jesus Saviour, others may depart
From Thy presence, grieving Thee at heart,
But my heart doth cleave unto Thee still,
Work within me, Lord, Thy perfect will. [Refrain]

3 Jesus Saviour, Thou hast made me new,
In Thy love hast sanctified me, too,
Thou wilt keep me daily by Thy pow'r
I will trust Thee, Saviour, evermore. [Refrain]

4 Jesus, Saviour, hear the pray'r I pray,
Fill me with Thy Spirit ev'ry day,
Let me live by ev'ry word of God,
Keep me, keep me in the perfect road. [Refrain]
