Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Jesus, the Savior, from Nazareth

Representative Text

1. Jesus the Saviour from Nazareth came,
Healing the lepers, the sick, blind and lame,
Seeking the lost ones, his precious life gave,
Jesus the Mighty to save.

Glory to Jesus, the lamb that was slain,
Glory to Jesus, I love his dear name,
Shout the glad tidings, the message proclaim,
That the Saviour is coming again.

2. Jesus the Saviour on Calvary's tree,
Purchased salvation, to all it is free;
Triumph'd o'er Satan, o'er death and the grave,
Jesus the Mighty to save. [Chorus]

3. Out on the mountain so barren and cold,
Far from the loving embrace of his fold;
Surged by the tempest, and toss'd by the wave,
Jesus the Mighty to save. [Chorus]

4. Sinner, the Saviour is pleading today,
Waiting to lead you in life's pleasant way;
If you'll accept the sweet promise he gave,
Jesus the Mighty to save. [Chorus]

From The World's Crisis, 13 April 1921, p.7: "Elder Sederquist was born in Lower Granville, Nova Scotia, according to the narrative in his Life and Labors, Sept. 10, 1838. He was converted about the first of the year 1863, was baptized in February, and was soon out in the field in Gospel work, with open doors for his labors. After a few years he accepted the Adventist faith, and in the spring of 1871 entered the United States and took up his home in Lynn [Mass.]." --Entire article available in the DNAH Archives.
