#226: My Savior

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

I am not skilled to understand

What God hath willed, what God hath planned;

I only know at His right hand

Is One who is my Savior!

2

I take Him at His word indeed –

“Christ died for sinners,” this I read –

For in my heart I find a need

Of Him to be my Savior!

3

That He should leave His place on high

And come for sinful man to die,

You count it strange? So once did I,

Before I knew my Savior!

4

And O that He fulfilled may see

The travail of His soul in me,

And with His work contented be,

As I with my dear Savior!

5

Yes, living, dying, let me bring

My strength, my solace from this spring:

That He who lives to be my King

Once died to be my Savior!
