Lyrics

What a wonderful Savior is Jesus,
A wonderful Savior is He;
What a wonderful Savior is Jesus,
He died for you and me.

Refrain

What a wonderful, wonderful Savior,
He saves, He saves;
What a wonderful Savior is Jesus,
He saves and keeps me now.

What a wonderful Savior is Jesus,
He saved a poor sinner like me;
What a wonderful Savior is Jesus,
There’s pardon waiting for thee.

Refrain

What a wonderful Savior is Jesus,
He sweetly dwells within;
What a wonderful Savior is Jesus,
He saves and keeps from sin.

Refrain

What a wonderful Savior is Jesus,
He’s coming by and by;
What a wonderful Savior is Jesus,
We’ll reign with Him on high.
