Dear Savior, My Adoring PraiseDon 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!
