Representative Text

1 Jesus shed his precious blood,
For me, for me;
Jesus brings me back to God,
Jesus saves me now.

2 There for me the Saviour stands,
For me, for me;
Shows his wounds and spread his hands.
Jesus saves me now.

3 God is love, I know, I feel.
For me, for me;
Jesus lives and loves me still.
Jesus saves me now.

4 Plenteous grace with thee is found,
For me, for me;
Let the healing showers abound.
Jesus saves me now.

5 Rock of ages cleft for me,
For me, for me;
Now I hide myself in thee.
Jesus saves me now.
