          Jesus! what a Friend for sinners!
          Jesus! Lover of my soul.
          Friends may fail me, foes assail me,
          He, my Savior, makes me whole.

            Chorus
            Hallelujah! what a Savior!
            Hallelujah! what a Friend!
            Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
            He is with me to the end.

          Jesus! what a strength in weakness!
          Let me hide myself in Him;
          Tempted, tried, and sometimes failing,
          He, my strength, my vict'ry wins.

            Chorus
            Hallelujah! what a Savior!
            Hallelujah! what a Friend!
            Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
            He is with me to the end.

          Jesus! what a help in sorrow!
          While the billows o'er me roll,
          Even when my heart is breaking,
          He, my comfort, helps my soul.

            Chorus
            Hallelujah! what a Savior!
            Hallelujah! what a Friend!
            Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
            He is with me to the end.

          Jesus! what a guide and keeper!
          While the tempest still is high,
          Storms about me, night o'ertakes me,
          He, my pilot, hears my cry.

            Chorus
            Hallelujah! what a Savior!
            Hallelujah! what a Friend!
            Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
            He is with me to the end.

          Jesus! I do now receive Him,
          More than all in Him I find,
          He hath granted me forgiveness,
          I am His, and He is mine.

            Chorus
            Hallelujah! what a Savior!
            Hallelujah! what a Friend!
            Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
            He is with me to the end.
