1 When the blessed Savior
Saw me far astray,
Tenderly He sought me,
Calling night and day;
On the wings of mercy,
To my rescue flew,
And today He’s willing to do the same for you.

Refrain:
Jesus Christ my Savior will do the same for you,
Jesus Christ my Savior will do the same for you;
He has done for me what
No one else could do,
And today He’s willing to do the same for you.

2 When the blessed Savior
Found me in despair,
Overwhelm’d with trials,
And with woe and care;
Then He gave me courage,
Did my strength renew,
And today He’s willing to do the same for you. [Refrain]

3 When the blessed Savior
Took away my sin,
With His blood He washed me,
Made me pure within;
By His Holy Spirit
Cleans’d me thro’ and thro’,
And today He’s willing to do the same for you. [Refrain]
