1271. I have a Saviour, he's pleading in glory

1 I have a Saviour, he's pleading in glory,
A dear, loving Saviour, though earth friends be few;
And now he is watching in tenderness o'er me,
And O that my Saviour were your Saviour too!

For you I am praying,
for you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
I'm praying for you.

2 I have a Father: to me he has given
A hope for eternity, blessed and true;
And soon will he call me to meet him in heaven,
But O that he'd let me bring you with me too! [Chorus]

3 A robe fair and spotless, resplendent in whiteness,
Is waiting in glory my wondering view;
And when I receive it all shining in brightness,
Dear friend, I would see you receiving one too! [Chorus]

4 To me has been given sweet peace like a river
A peace that the friends of this world never knew;
And Christ is the Author, and Christ is the Giver,
And O that his peace might be given to you! [Chorus]

5 When Jesus has found you, tell others the story,
That my loving Saviour is your Saviour too;
Then pray that your Saviour may bring them to glory,
And prayer will be answered 'twas answered for you! [Chorus]
