Representative Text

1 We have a present Savior,
Each trial to control;
We have a perfect Savior,
To make the wounded whole;
We have a precious Savior,
Each sorrow to console;
Our own perpetual Savior,
On him thy burden roll.

Refrain:
Ours, precious Savior, ours;
To him each care confide,
Beneath his wings abide.

2 We have a present Savior,
To keep from day to day;
We have a perfect Savior,
To wash all guilt away;
We have a precious Savior,
To follow and obey;
Our own perpetual Savior,
In him rejoice alway. [Refrain]

3 We have a present Savior,
To him each care confide;
We have a perfect Savior,
Beneath his winds abide;
We have a precious Savior,
Our heavenward steps to guide;
Our own perpetual Savior,
The crowned and crucified. [Refrain]

Owens, Priscilla Jane, was born July 21, 1829, of Scotch and Welsh descent, and is now (1906) resident at Baltimore, where she is engaged in public-school work. For 50 years Miss Owen has interested herself in Sunday-school work, and most of her hymns were written for children's services. Her hymn in the Scotch Church Hymnary, 1898, "We have heard a joyful sound" (Missions), was written for a Sunday-school Mission Anniversary, and the words were adapted to the chorus "Vive le Roi" in the opera The Huguenots.
