Representative 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]
