Full Text

1 The dear, loving Savior was taken by men
And nailed to the cross and was cruelly slain,
Was buried, but came froth triumphant again;
And now this Redeemer is mine.

Refrain:
This loving Redeemer is mine,
A friend and a Savior divine;
He dwells in me sweetly and saves me completely,
This loving Redeemer is mine.

2 He came to my heart and the light entered in;
His wonderful grace made an end of my sin;
He spoke the one word and the blood made me clean;
This friend of the sinner is mine. [Refrain]

3 His friendship is tender and precious and sweet,
And rich the communion enjoyed at his feet,
And O, his salvation is full and complete,
And all his salvation is mine! [Refrain]
