Lyrics

I’m glad I have a Savior,
Who came to rescue me;
When sunk in sin and ruin,
He died to set me free.

Refrain

I’m glad I have a Savior,
I’m glad, I’m glad today;
I’m glad I have a Savior
Who washed my sins away.

I’m glad I have a Savior
Who sought His wandering sheep,
Who brought me home rejoicing,
And still doth safely keep.

Refrain

I’m glad I have a Savior
Who hears and answers prayer;
My burdens and my sorrows
He tenderly doth bear.

Refrain

I’m glad I have a Savior
Whose mercy is so free;
O come, poor soul, and trust Him,
There’s gladness, too, for thee.
