Jesus, Savior, friend of sinners,
Waits to welcome, waits to bless;
And I must not keep Him waiting,
For I long for happiness.

Refrain

He my soul with blood hath ransomed,
And will keep me to the end;
He’s entitled to my best love,
For He is the sinner’s friend.

Jesus, Savior, friend of sinners,
Comes to cheer my heart today;
He has shouldered every burden,
And will help me all the way.

Refrain

Jesus, Savior, friend of sinners,
Comes to comfort, comes to cheer;
And I’ll not go mourning longer,
For He saves me now and here.

Refrain

Jesus, Savior, friend of sinners,
He has been a friend to me;
And to think with Him in glory
I shall reign eternally!

Refrain
