Representative Text

1 O what a Savior is Jesus to me,
Loving and true, loving and true;
Daily renewing His grace unto me
While His commandments I do!

Refrain:
O what a tender, compassionate Friend
I’ve found Him to be, I’ve found Him to be!
O what a wonderful, wonderful Savior
Is Jesus my Lord to me!

2 Never a moment that He is not near,
Grace to bestow, grace to bestow;
Ready to comfort and ready to cheer
As on my journey I go. [Refrain]

3 Is there another so loving a Friend,
Gracious and kind, gracious and kind;
Evermore ready his own to defend,
And so to bless me inclined? [Refrain]
