A wonderful Saviour

A wonderful Saviour is Jesus, my Lord,
a wonderful Saviour 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 Saviour 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 goodness divine,
I sing in my rapture, oh, glory to God
for such a Redeemer as mine!


When 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.
