Jesus Owns You

Representative Text

1 Jesus, the Saviour, loving and true,
Who came from his home in the sky,
Sinners to ransom, hearts to renew,
Calls you, and bids you come nigh.

Chorus:
Jesus, your Saviour, yours to the end,
Bought you and made you his own;
Hasten to own him, gladly enthrone him,
Jesus, the Saviour, alone.

2 O what a Saviour, paying a debt
That cost him his life on the tree.
Surely he owns you; can you forget
His love and his mercy so free? [Chorus]

3 You are the sinner Jesus has bought,
Obey him and love him below;
Joy everlasting, riches unsought,
Your Master and Lord will bestow. [Chorus]
