Representative Text

1 Jesus the Savior, dying on Calv’ry,
Purchased my pardon, setting me free.
Love so abundant, should I not serve Him,
When He so gladly suffered for me?

Lord, I am Thine, Savior divine,
O what a joy
Just to know, Thou art mine.

2 O what a Savior, tender and loving,
Guarding my footsteps lest I should stray;
Love so abundant, leading me ever,
Out of the darkness into the day. [Refrain]

3 Constant companion, leaving me never,
Bidding me follow close by Thy side;
He is my refuge, safely I shelter,
Knowing He loves me, whate’er betide. [Refrain]
