Representative Text

1 Rescued am I from the darkness of sin,
I have a wonderful Saviour,
Opened is Heav’n, I may now enter in,
I have a wonderful Saviour.

Refrain:
Wonderful, wonderful Saviour,
I have a wonderful Saviour,
He cleansed from sin, and spoke peace to my soul,
I have a wonderful Saviour.

2 Nearer, yes nearer I draw to his side,
I have a wonderful Saviour,
Nothing can harm me not evil betide,
I have a wonderful Saviour. [Refrain]

3 All my iniquities on Him were laid,
I have a wonderful Saviour,
Cleansed and redeemed were the words that he said,
I have a wonderful Saviour. [Refrain]

4 Th' pardon he gave me I never shall doubt
I have a wonderful Saviour,
Sins of my lifetime were all blotted out,
I have a wonderful Saviour. [Refrain]

5 Full I love Him and take Him as mine
I have a wonderful Saviour,
Gladly for him all of earth I resign,
I have a wonderful Saviour. [Refrain]

6 Gladly I’ll serve till the journey is o’er
I have a wonderful Saviour,
Then with the ransom’d I’ll dwell evermore,
I have a wonderful Saviour. [Refrain]
