Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

What a Savior

What a wonderful Savior is Jesus, all our sins

Author: George W. Crofts
Tune: [What a wonderful Savior is Jesus]
Published in 6 hymnals

Representative Text

1 What a wonderful Savior is Jesus,
All our sins He hath borne on the tree;
Of all guilt and transgressions He frees us,
What a wonderful Savior is He.

What a Savior, Savior,
Wonderful Savior is Jesus,
What a Savior, Savior,
What a wonderful Savior is He.

2 Gently in the green pastures He leads us,
By the waters untroubled and clear,
With the manna of heaven He feeds us,
And in sorrow He ever is near. [Chorus]

3 Widely open the portals of glory,
To the city whose streets are of gold,
As He tells us the wonderful story,
That to sinners so often He told. [Chorus]

4 Oh, the hope that in fullness He gives us!
Oh, the joy and the peace, how divine!
When in love He so freely receives us,
And our souls in His righteousness shine. [Chorus]
