Lyrics

I love my precious Savior,
For He has died for me,
My every sin atoning,
Upon Mount Calvary.

Refrain

I love my precious Savior,
I love my precious Savior,
I love my precious Savior,
For He has died for me.

I love my precious Savior,
His love for me is true,
And falls about my pathway,
As falls the gentle dew.

Refrain

I love my precious Savior,
For He, when here below,
Took in His arms the children,
His blessing to bestow.
