Robert Lowry, Gospel Hymns and Tune Book (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: American Baptist Publication Society, 1878) (🔊 pdf nwc).

My soul is happy all day long—
Jesus is my Savior;
And all my life is full of song—
Jesus died for me.

Refrain

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
To the loving Lamb for sinners slain;
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
To the Lamb who lives again.

My heavy load of sin is gone—
Jesus is my Savior;
At His dear cross I laid it down—
Jesus died for me.

Refrain

I heard the voice of mercy call—
Jesus is my Savior;
I simply trusted, that was all—
Jesus died for me.

Refrain

Now will I tell it all around—
Jesus is my Savior;
How sweet a blessing I have found—
Jesus died for me.

Refrain
