Robert Harkness (1880–1961)


I have a Sav­ior, He died for me
In cru­el ang­uish on Cal­v’ry’s tree.
I do not mer­it such love di­vine,
Only God’s mer­cy makes Je­sus mine.


Jesus, my Sav­ior, I come to Thee
In full sur­rend­er Thine own to be.

I have a keep­er, He now pre­vails,
I fear no ev­il what­e’er as­sails.
His arms en­fold me, safe and se­cure,
In His blest keep­ing vic­t’ry is sure.


I have a mas­ter, He bids me go
Rescue lost sin­ners from sin and woe.
I love to serve Him, this mas­ter true,
Now I am will­ing His will to do.
