(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
A wonderful Savior to me;
He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
Where rivers of pleasure I see.
He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock That shadows a dry, thirsty land;
He hideth my life in the depths of His love,
And covers me there with His hand, And covers me there with His hand.
A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord –
He taketh my burden away;
He holdeth me up and I shall not be moved,
He giveth me strength as my day.
With numberless blessings each moment He crowns,
And, filled with His bullness divine,
I sing in my rapture, “O glory to God
For such a Redeemer as mine!”
Then clothed in His brightness transported I rise
To meet Him in clouds of the sky,
His perfect salvation, His wonderful love,
I’ll shout with the millions on high.
