Savior, Blessed Savior

Representative Text

1 Savior, blessed Savior, listen while we sing,
hearts and voices raising praises to our King.
All we have we offer, all we hope to do,
body, soul, and spirit, all we yield to you.

Savior, blessed Savior, listen while we sing,
hearts and voice raising praises to our King.

2 Great and even greater, are your mercies here,
true and everlasting are the glories there,
where no pain or sorrow, toil or care is known,
where the angel legions circle 'round your throne. [Refrain]

3 Clearer still and clearer, dawns the light from heav'n,
in our sadness bringing news of sin forgiv'n.
Life has lost its shadows, pure the light within;
you have shed your radiance on a world of sin. [Refrain]
