Representative Text

1 Tho’ many and deep thy transgressions may be,
In God’s only Son there is mercy for thee;
So be of good cheer, for salvation is free,
For He is a Savior of love.

He is a Savior of love,
A wonderful Savior of love;
Rejected, denied,
On Calv’ry He died,
For He is a Savior of love.

2 So far He has followed thy wandering feet!
So often, in vain, offered pardon complete!
Yet still He is loving, forgiving and sweet,
For He is a Savior of love. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ long thou hast grieved Him, there’s nothing to fear,
He knows ev’ry weakness; thy plea He will hear;
He waits to relieve thee, to comfort and cheer,
For He is a Savior of love. [Refrain]

4 Oh, come to my Savior, seek pardon today;
Tho’ many thy sins He will take them away;
Thy past He will hide, be thy comfort and stay,
For He is a Savior of love. [Refrain]
