Lyrics

Although I am a sinful child,
Jesus is my Savior—
With guilt my heart is all defiled,
Jesus died for me.

Refrain

I sing the love of Jesus—
He died for me, He died for me—
His precious blood can cleanse me,
Once shed on Calvary.

Though but a child, I’ll do His will,
Jesus is my Savior—
I’ll hear His voice, and follow still—
Jesus died for me.

Refrain

Around my feet is many a snare,
Jesus is my Savior—
I’ll seek Him every day in prayer,
Jesus died for me.

Refrain

And since His service I’ve begun,
Jesus is my Savior—
I’ll tell His love to every one,
Jesus died for me.

Refrain

When all my duties here are done,
Jesus is my Savior—
He’ll take me nearer to His throne,
Jesus died for me.
