Lyrics

Precious Savior, dear Redeemer,
Thy sweet message now impart;
May Thy Spirit, pure and fervid,
Enter every timid heart;
Carry there the swift conviction,
Turning back the sinful tide;
Precious Savior, dear Redeemer,
May each soul in Thee abide.

Precious Savior, dear Redeemer,
We are weak, but Thou art strong;
In Thy infinite compassion,
Stay the tide of sin and wrong;
Keep Thy loving arms around us,
Keep us in the narrow way;
Precious Savior, dear Redeemer,
Let us never from Thee stray.

Precious Savior, dear Redeemer,
Thou wilt bind the broken heart;
Let not sorrows overwhelm us,
Dry the bitter tears that start;
Curb the winds and calm the billows,
Bid the angry tempest cease;
Precious Savior, dear Redeemer,
Grant us everlasting peace.
