Lord Jesus, Savior of the LostDon Fortner

(Tune: #46 — O for a Thousand Tongues — CM)

1.        Lord Jesus, Savior of the lost,

My only hiding place,

I fall before Your sov’reign throne

And seek Your saving grace.


2.        Guilty, pursued by justice, Lord,

Helpless to You I fly;

An outcast wretch, undone I am;

Save me, or else I die!


3.        Forgive my sins, renew my soul,

O wash me in Your blood;

Your Spirit send and make me whole;

Restore me to my God!


4.        My life, my soul, my all I give

To You, my rightful Lord;

Receive me now, salvation grant,

According to Your Word.


5.        Eternal life! Eternal life!

The gift of grace divine.

I can, I will, I do believe -

Eternal life is mine!


6.        And when I stand before Your throne

On that great judgment day,

Your blood and righteousness alone

Shall be this sinner’s plea!
