BLESSED SAVIOR, FAITHFUL FRIEND
(Tune: Come, Thou Fount #17 87.87.D)
Savior, by Your blood You bought us
From the holy law of God;
By Your sov'reign grace You freed us
From our sin's bondage and load.
We are Yours, You bought and saved us,
Blessed Savior, Faithful Friend!
Lead and feed, keep and protect us
'Til we reach our journey's end.
By Your Spirit's grace You've kept us
Through temptations great and long;
We know not what lies before us,
But we trust our Savior strong.
Through the valley dark and cheerless,
Where our destined paths may go,
May Your presence make us fearless
In the face of every foe.
When we hunger, You will feed us,
Daily manna will be found;
Faint and thirsting, You will hear us,
Steams of water will abound.
When our pilgrimage is finished
And we've reached our journey's end,
Then with songs, perfect and endless,
We'll praise You, our Savior, Friend!
