Song of the Savior

Representative Text

1 Sing we a song of the Savior,
Gentle, and loving, and true,
Walking the valley of shadows,
Dying for me and for you.

Praise Him, praise Him,
Gentle, and loving, and true;
Praise Him, praise Him,
Dying for me and for you.

2 Born in the Bethlehem manger,
Angels attended His birth,
And from the heavens descended
Songs of rejoicing on earth. [Refrain]

3 Bearing His burden of sorrows,
Still did He love us the same;
All that reviled Him forgiving,
Bearing the cross and its shame. [Refrain]

4 Now to the heavens ascended,
Him by the Father behold,
Pleading the cause of His children,
Loving us just as of old. [Refrain]
