SWEET DELIVERANCE†††††††

Don Fortner

(Tune: Savior, Like A Shepherd, Lead Us #29487.87.87)

 

Saved by grace, O what a wonder - Jesus lived and died for me!

††† He has torn my bands asunder, And from bondage set me free!

 

††††††††††† Refrain:

Sweet deliverance, sweet deliverance

††††††††††††††††††††††† Jesus Christ has wrought for me!

 

 

For this willing slave to Satan, (Loving sin, rushing to hell!),

††† Christ, the God of my salvation, Died to save my soul from hell.

 

 

All my sins to Him imputed, Willingly, He called His own.

††By Godís justice executed, Christ for all my sins atoned!

 

 

At the time of love appointed, Christ, in mercy, called His Own,

††† By the blessed Holy Spirit, Drew me to His gracious throne.

 

 

Now, I live in hope of glory - (Soon, Iíll be with Christ above!)

††† There, I tell my blessed story With a heart of perfect love!
