Who can wash a sinner’s guilt away?
There is no one like the Savior, hallelujah!
Who can turn his darkness into day?
There is no one like the Savior, hallelujah!

Refrain

O glory, glory, hallelujah!
There is no one like the Savior, hallelujah!
While we live or die, in the earth or sky,
There is no one like the Savior, hallelujah.

When we’re lowly bent with grief and care,
There is no one like the Savior, hallelujah!
He speaks, and the sunbeams linger there,
There is no one like the Savior, hallelujah!

Refrain

When we’re tempest tossed upon life’s deep,
There is no one like the Savior, hallelujah!
He speaks, and the wild waves hush to sleep,
There is no one like the Savior, hallelujah!

Refrain

When we feel the icy touch of death,
There is no one like the Savior, hallelujah!
He will take us at our closing breath,
There is no one like the Savior, hallelujah!

Refrain

In that blessèd home where rests the soul,
There is no one like the Savior, hallelujah!
This shall be our song while ages roll,
There is no one like the Savior, hallelujah!
