Jesus has loved me—won­der­ful Sav­ior!
Jesus has loved me, I can­not tell why;
Came He to res­cue sin­ners all worth­less,
My heart He con­quered—for Him I would die.


Glory to Je­sus—won­der­ful Sav­ior!
Glory to Je­sus, the One I adore;
Glory to Je­sus—won­der­ful Sav­ior!
Glory to Je­sus and praise ev­er­more.

Jesus has saved me—wonderful Sav­ior!
Jesus has saved me, I can­not tell how;
All that I know is, He was my ran­som,
Dying on Calv’ry with thorns on His brow.


Jesus will lead me—won­der­ful Sav­ior!
Jesus will lead me, I can­not tell where;
But I will fol­low, thro’ joy or sor­row,
Sunshine or tem­pest, sweet peace or des­pair.


Jesus will crown me—won­der­ful Sav­ior!
Jesus will crown me, I can­not tell when;
White throne of splen­dor hail I with glad­ness,
Crowned ’mid the plau­dits of an­gels and men.
