1 The dear loving Saviour has found me,
And shattered the fetters that bound me,
Tho’ all was confusion around me,
He came and spoke peace to my soul;
The blessed Redeemer that bought me,
In tenderness constantly sought me,
The way of salvation he taught me,
And made my heart perfectly whole.

He saves me, he saves me,
His love fills my soul, hallelujah!
O glory, O glory, His Spirit abideth within;
He saves me, he saves me,
His love fills my soul, hallelujah!
O glory, O glory, his blood cleanses me from all sin.

2 He sought me so long e’er I knew him,
But finally winning me to him,
I yielded my all to pursue him,
And asked to be filled with his grace;
Although a vile sinner before him,
Thro’ faith I was led to implore him,
And now I rejoice and adore him,
Restored to his loving embrace. [Refrain]

3 I never, no, never will leave him,
Grow weary of service and grieve him,
I’ll constantly trust and believe him,
Remain in his presence divine;
Abiding in love ever flowing,
In knowledge and grace ever growing,
Confiding implicitly, knowing
That Jesus the Saviour is mine. [Refrain]
