Hymn/Song Information

The Saviour loves our souls so well That




The Saviour loves our souls so well
That he hath ransomed us form hell;
And turns us from the downward path
Which leads to everlasting wrath.


He frees us from guilt’s heavy load,
And rescues from the curse of God;
Once for our sins he did atone,
And soon will raise us to his throne.


He made our doubts and terrors cease;
He brings us pardon, hope, and peace,
And has the Holy Spirit given
To fit us for the bliss of heaven.


He keeps us by his loving care,
Feels for our grief and hears our prayer;
He to the end our souls will save,
And make us triumph o’er the grave.


That we might happiness receive
He did his heavenly glory leave,
And lived on earth, unknown, obscure,
Amidst the suffering and the poor.


He passed through hunger, toil, and pain,
Our hearts to win, our peace to gain;
And left his throne to bleed and die,
That we might live eternally.


Why does he thus protect and bless
Those who have lost all righteousness?
Why does he save the hard of heart
And to the wicked grace impart?


Why does he make the proud to bend?
Why love the inconstant to the end?
There’s nought in us his heart to move,
But yet he loves us and will love.


Love to divine our hearts hath bought,
Let us obey him as we ought;
Serve him through life, with all our power,
And give to him each fleeting hour.


Let us each day his goodness praise,
Walk with delight in all his ways;
Ever his faithful servants prove,
And love him with eternal love.
