When Jesus laid His crown aside,
He came to save me;
When on the cross He bled and died,
He came to save me.

Refrain

I’m so glad, I’m so glad,
I’m so glad that Jesus came, and grace is free,
I’m so glad, I’m so glad,
I’m so glad that Jesus came, He came to save me.

In my poor heart He deigns to dwell,
He came to save me;
O praise His name, I know it well,
He came to save me.

Refrain

With gentle hand He leads me still,
He came to save me;
And trusting Him I fear no ill,
He came to save me.

Refrain

To Him my faith with rapture clings,
He came to save me,
To Him my heart looks up and sings,
He came to save me.

Refrain
