What a Savior Jesus is

Full Text

1 There's a song my soul keeps singing o'er and o'er,
As I travel onward to the Golden Shore; -
I shall sing it over there forevermore:
What a Savior Jesus is!

Chorus:
What a Savior! (What a Savior Jesus is!)
What a Savior! (What a Savior Jesus is!)
What a Savior since I know that I am His!
What a Savior! (What a Savior Jesus is!)
What a Savior! (What a Savior Jesus is!)
What a Savior Jesus is!

2 I was blind, but Jesus brought me to the light,
And His tender touch of love restored my sight;
Now my ransomed soul keeps singing day and night:
What a Savior Jesus is! [Chorus]

3 I am trav'ling on with Jesus hand in hand,
Ever drawing nearer to the golden strand;
I will sing until I reach the Glory-land;
What a Savior Jesus is! [Chorus]

4 When at last my soul shall reach that blissful place,
Saved eternally by His unbounded grace,
I shall sing while I behold Him face to face:
What a Savior Jesus is!
