Jesus, my king, my won­der­ful Sav­ior,
All of my life is giv­en to Thee.
I am re­joic­ing in Thy sal­va­tion;
Thy pre­cious blood now mak­eth me free.


Wonderful Sav­ior, won­der­ful Sav­ior,
Thou art so near, so pre­cious to me!
Wonderful Sav­ior, won­der­ful Sav­ior,
My heart is filled with prais­es to Thee!

Freedom from sin, O won­der­ful sto­ry—
All of its stains washed whit­er than snow!
Jesus has come to live in His tem­ple,
And with His love my heart is aglow.


Jesus, my Lord, I’ll ev­er ad­ore Thee,
Lay at Thy feet my trea­sures of love.
Lead me in ways to show forth Thy glo­ry,
Ways that will end in Hea­ven above.


When in that bright and beau­ti­ful ci­ty
I shall behold Thy glo­ries un­told,
I shall be like Thee, won­der­ful Sav­ior,
And I will sing while ag­es un­fold.
