Representative Text

1 My soul is happy all day long—
Jesus is my Savior;
And all my life is full of song—
Jesus died for me.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
To the loving Lamb for sinners slain;
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
To the Lamb who lives again.

2 My heavy load of sin is gone—
Jesus is my Savior;
At His dear cross I laid it down—
Jesus died for me. [Refrain]

3 I heard the voice of mercy call—
Jesus is my Savior;
I simply trusted, that was all—
Jesus died for me. [Refrain]

4 Now will I tell it all around—
Jesus is my Savior;
How sweet a blessing I have found—
Jesus died for me. [Refrain]
