#49: Our Great Savior

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Jesus! what a Friend for sinners! Jesus! Lover of my soul;

Friends may fail me, foes assail me; He, my Savior, makes me whole.

CHORUS

Hallelujah! what a Savior! Hallelujah! what a Friend!

Saving, helping, keeping, loving, He is with me to the end.

2

Jesus! what a Strength in weakness! Let me hide myself in Him;

tempted, tried, and sometimes failing, He, my Strength, my vic-t’ry wins.

CHORUS

3

Jesus! what a Help in sorrow! While the billows o’er me roll;

Even when my heart is break-ing, He, my Comfort, helps my soul.

CHORUS

4

Jesus! what a Guide and Keeper! While the tempest still is high;

Storms about me, night o’ertakes me, He, My Pilot, hears my cry.

CHORUS

5

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.

CHORUS
