Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Full Text

1 One who will freely forgive all my sin,
He is the Saviour for me;
Bringing his precious salvation within,
He is the Saviour for me.
Spreading his mercy, like sunshine, around,
Wonderful grace that will “much more abound;”
Just such a Saviour in Jesus I’ve found,
He is the Saviour for me.

Refrain:
He is the Saviour for me;
Glory to him ever be;
Just such a Saviour in Jesus I’ve found,
He is the Saviour for me.

2 One who can turn bitter waters to sweet,
He is the Saviour for me;
Peace, “perfect peace,” as I wait at his feet,
He is the Saviour for me.
Cleansing me, keeping me, day after day,
Helping me walk in his royal highway,
Hearing and ans’wring as humbly I pray,
He is the Saviour for me. [Refrain]

3 One who is loving and tender and true,
He is the Saviour for me;
Able my courage and strength to renew,
He is the Saviour for me.
Lifting me up as his cross I shall bear,
Calling me ever to heights pure and fair,
In his great harvesting letting me share,
He is the Saviour for me. [Refrain]
