It's Just Like My Savior

Representative Text

1 When I a ransomed sinner see,
Redeem'd from death, from sin set free,
It causes no surprise to me,--
It's just like my Savior.

Oh, Jesus is a friend so true!
There's naught too hard for Him to do;
He purchased life for me and you,
It's just like my Savior.

2 When all pollution's wash'd away,
And I am kept from day to day,
My throbbing heart with joy can say,
It's just like my Savior. [Chorus]

3 While bowing at the mercy seat,
He comes my waiting soul to greet,
And our communion is so sweet,--
It's just like my Savior. [Chorus]

4 And when my hour shall come to die,
His holy angels from the sky
Will bear me to my home on high,--
It's just like my Savior. [Chorus]
