JEHOVAH MY SAVIOUR




I once was a stranger to grace and to God;
I knew not my danger and felt not my load:
Though friends spoke in rapture of Christ on the tree.
|: Jehovah, my Saviour, was nothing to me. :|


When free grace awoke me by light from on high,
Then legal tears shook me; I trembled to die;
No refuge, no safety, in self could I see;
|: Jehovah! Thou only my Saviour must be. :|


My terrors all vanished before the sweet name;
My guilty fears banished, with boldness I came
To drink at the fountain life-giving and free:
|: Jehovah, my Saviour, is all things to me. :|


Jehovah, the Lord, is my treasure and boast;
Jehovah, my Saviour. I ne'er can be lost:
In thee I shall conquer by flood and by field,
|: Jehovah, my anchor, Jehovah, my shield. :|


E'en treading the valley, the shadow of death,
This watchword shall rally my faltering breath;
For while from life's fever my God sets me free,
|: Jehovah, my Saviour, my death-song shall be. :|

Though friends spoke in rapture of Christ on the tree.
  |: Jehovah, my Saviour, seemed nothing to me. :| 


My terrors all vanished before his sweet name; 
My guilty fears banished, with boldness I came 
To drink at the fountain so copious and free: 
|: Jehovah, my Saviour, is all things to me. :|
