Lyrics

I’ve found a friend, the best of all,
Jesus, the won­der­ful Sav­ior!
He heard my weak but ear­nest call,
Jesus, the won­der­ful Sav­ior!
When lost in sin He heard my cry,
To earth He came for me to die;
And now He’s reign­ing up on high,
Is this won­der­ful, won­der­ful Sav­ior!

Refrain

Wonderful, won­der­ful Sav­ior!
Wonderful, won­der­ful Sav­ior!
Of Him I’ll sing, and ev­er will cling,
To this won­der­ful, won­der­ful Sav­ior!

With outcast sin­ners He did eat,
Jesus, the won­der­ful Sav­ior!
And washed His own dis­ci­ples’ feet,
Jesus, the won­der­ful Sav­ior!
Tho’ with­out sin, for us He died,
On Calv’ry’s cross was cru­ci­fied;
Buried, arose, and glo­ri­fied,
Was this won­der­ful, won­der­ful Sav­ior!

Refrain

For us He suf­fered want and shame,
Jesus, the won­der­ful Sav­ior!
We’re saved thro’ faith in His dear name,
Jesus, the won­der­ful Sav­ior!
No oth­er name for sin­ners giv’n,
No oth­er name in earth or Heav’n;
But all must come, who’d be for­giv’n,
To this won­der­ful, won­der­ful Sav­ior!
