Lyrics

The Savior who saw, from His home in the sky,
From sin we could never be free,
And loved us so well that He came down to die—
This, this is the Savior for me.

Refrain

Oh, this is the Savior for me,
Oh, this is the Savior for me,
Who loved us so well that He came down to die,
This, this is the Savior for me.

The Savior who left all the glories of Heav’n,
And died a vile death on the tree,
That I a bright crown, and a robe might be giv’n—
This, this is the Savior for me.

Refrain

The Savior who feels every sorrow we bear,
And asks us His children to be,
That safe He may keep, in His tenderest care—
This, this is the Savior for me.

Refrain

The Savior who leads us to trust in His love,
And there we His glory shall see,
And safely will guard, and will take us above—
This, this is the Savior for me.
