Representative Text

1 We would sing of Jesus and his love,
While with him we march to realms above;
We would know his word, each promise prove,
Hallelujah, praise his name!

Refrain:
Oh, what a wonderful Saviour!
Oh, what a wonderful Saviour!
Oh, what a wonderful Saviour
Is Jesus Christ my King!

2 Praise him for the strength to reach the goal,
Praise him for the healing of the soul;
Praise him for his blood that makes us whole,
Hallelujah, praise his name! [Refrain]

3 Praise him for his goodness, for his grace,
For his succor in each trying place;
We shall soon with joy behold his face,
Hallelujah, praise his name! [Refrain]
