Dear Savior, My Adoring Praise – Don Fortner
(Tune: #46—O For A Thousand Tongues—CM)
Awake, my soul, in joyful song
And give Jehovah praise!
Awake, my heart, awake, and sing
Of mercy, love and grace!
In mercy great, because of love,
To bring eternal grace,
The Son of God at Calv’ry died
In this poor sinner’s place!
The Lamb of God made sin for me
(Abandoned in my place!)
Has born and satisfied God’s wrath!
Amazing love and grace!
For me, (For me!) Jehovah died
To bring me endless bliss,
In righteousness to make me His—
Was ever love like this?
Dear Savior, my adoring praise
To You alone shall be,
My Husband, Friend, Redeemer, too,
The God who died for me!
