our great savior
jesus! what a friend for sinners!
jesus! lover of my soul;
friends may fail me, foes *ssail me,
he, my savior, makes me whole.
hallelujah! what a savior!
hallelujah! what a friend!
saving, helping, keeping, loving,
he is with me to the end.
jesus! what a strength in weakness!
let me hid myself in him;
tempted, tried, and sometimes failing,
he, my strength, my victory wins.
jesus! i do now receive him!
more than all in him i find,
he hath granted me, forgiveness,
i am his, and he is mine.
jesus! what a help in sorrow!
while the billows o’er me roll;
even when my heart is breaking,
he, my comfort, helps my soul.
jesus! what a guide and keeper!
while the tempest still is high;
storms about me, night o’er takes me,
he, my pilot, hears my cry.
