Jesus Savior, Love divine

Representative Text

1. Jesus Saviour, Love divine,
Come and keep this heart of mine;
Free it from its weight of care,
Keep it tender, full of prayer.

Kept by thine almighty power,
Feel thy blood applied each hour;
Sweetly in thy love abide,
Saved by keeping near thy side.

2. May thy Spirit's tender glow,
Thro' its every feeling flow;
Pointing lost ones to his blood,
With its cleansing, healing flood. [Chorus]

3. Waiting for the coming day,
When all sin shall pass away;
When the faithful, saved by grace,
Ever shall behold his face. [Chorus]

4. Till that day, dear Jesus, be
Everything I need, to me;
Keep me in thy precious love,
Till I view thee from above. [Chorus]

He held pastorates at Hudson Falls, New York and Lawrence, Mass. Ill health and a final paralysis limited activity in his later years, although he supplied in various churches around New Bedford. He wrote words and music to a number of hymns, and composed the music for other Advent Christian hymn-writers. He was secretary of the Southern Massachusetts District Conference of his denomination. He contributed to the preparation of several of its hymnals, and was co-editor of The Golden Sheaf (1898), Carols of Hope (1906) and The Advent Christian Hymnal (1913).… Go to person page >
