Our Great SaviorApr 23, 2020
Jesus! what a Friend for sinners!
Jesus! lover of my soul;
friends may fail me, foes assail 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 hide myself in Him;
tempted, tried, and sometimes failing,
He, my strength, my vict'ry wins. [Refrain]
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. [Refrain]
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. [Refrain]
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. [Refrain]
by J. Wilbur Chapman, 1859-1918
