8.7.8.7. Dactylic Chorus 5.7.8.7.


1
CHRIST is the Saviour of sinners,
Christ is the Saviour for me;
Long I was chained in sin's darkness,
Now by his grace I am free.
2
Now I can say I am pardoned,
Happy and justified, free,
Saved by my Blessèd Redeemer -
This is the Saviour for me.
3
Just as I was He received me,
Seeking from judgement to flee;
Now there is no condemnation -
This is the Saviour for me.
4
Loved with a love that's unchanging,
Blessed with all blessings so free,
How shall I tell out His praises!
This is the Saviour for me.
5
Soon shall the glory be dawning,
Then, when His face I shall see,
Sing, O my soul, in thy gladness,
This is the Saviour for me!
Chorus
Saviour of sinners,
Saviour of sinners like me,
Giving Himself as a ransom -
This is the Saviour for me.
