11629. He Saves Me

1 My loving Savior, I am Thine,
I am Thine, I am Thine;
Saved, sweetly saved by love divine,
So sweetly Jesus saves me.
My soul so full still pants for more,
The higher up, we’d farther soar,
And all Thy glory would explore;
So sweetly Jesus saves me.

Saves me, saves me,
So sweetly now He saves me;
My soul is full of love divine,
So sweetly Jesus saves me.

2 Oh, if this love be here so sweet,
Here so sweet, here so sweet,
Its full fruition who can mete?
So sweetly Jesus saves me.
I’ll sing Thy praises here below,
From conqu’ring unto conquest go;
’Tis glory all Thy love to know,
So sweetly Jesus saves me. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ here our tears will often flow,
Often flow, often flow,
Bereft and sorrowing oft we go,
Yet Jesus sweetly saves me.
For whilst I know Thou art so near,
No danger I can ever fear,
The charge is still, Be of good cheer,
For Jesus sweetly saves me. [Refrain]

4 E’en tho’ we weep, ’tis not in vain,
Not in vain, not in vain;
E’en tho’ we die, to die is gain,
So sweetly Jesus saves me.
Who would mount up must needs bow down;
Who’ll bear the cross will wear the crown;
Whilst Jesus smiles the world may frown,
So sweetly Jesus saves me. [Refrain]
