Representative Text

1. Wonderful Savior, Redeemer,
Thou in tend’rest love
Watchest o’er every believer,
From Thy throne above.

Wonderful Savior!
Merciful Savior!
My hope and Redeemer,
Who shed His blood for me.

2. Thou hast in greatest compassion
Died our souls to save;
Purchased for us our redemption,
Hope beyond the grave. [Refrain]

3. Open my heart e’er to hear Thee,
Quick to hear Thy voice;
Fill Thou my soul with Thy praises,
Let my heart rejoice. [Refrain]
