Lyrics

From Hea­ven above, in His infinite love,
Came Je­sus, a Sav­ior to be;
And He scorned the deep pain our ransom to gain,
O He is the Sav­ior for me.

Refrain

O Je­sus is willing to be
A Sav­ior for sinners like me.
And the bur­den will roll
From the poor troubled soul
That to Je­sus the Sav­ior will flee.

The birds had their nest and the people their rest,
While Je­sus all night made His plea;
On the mountain alone was the Fa­ther’s dear Son,
O He is the Sav­ior for me.

Refrain

For silver betrayed, in mock purple arrayed,
Condemned to a death on the tree;
Then they led Him away on that wonderful day,
O He is the Sav­ior for me.
