My Saviour

Verse 1:
I am not skill’d to understand
What God hath will’d, what God hath plann’d;
I only know at His right hand
Is One who is my Saviour!

Verse 2:
I take Him at His word indeed:
“Christ died for sinners,” this I read;
For in my heart I find a need
Of Him to be my Saviour!

Verse 3:
That He should leave His place on high,
And come for sinful men to die,
You count it strange?–so once did I,
Before I knew my Saviour!

Verse 4:
And O that He fulfilled may see
The travail of His soul in me,
And with His work contented be,
As I with my dear Saviour!

Verse 5:
Yea, living, dying, let me bring
My strength, my solace from this spring,
That He who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Saviour!
