I have a Saviour, He’s pleading in glory,
A dear loving Saviour, though earth-friends be few;
And now He is watching in tenderness o’er me:
And oh, that my Saviour were your Saviour too!
For you I am praying, for you I am praying,
For you I am praying, I’m praying for you.
I have a Father: to me He has given
A hope for eternity blessed ad true
And soon He will call me to meet Him in heaven,
But oh, may He lead you to go with me too!
I have a robe: ‘tis resplendent in whiteness,
Awaiting in glory my wondering view;
Oh, when I receive it all shining in brightness,
Dear Friend, could I see you receiving one too!
I have a peace: it is calm as a river-
A peace that the friends of this world never knew;
My saviour alone is its Author and Giver,
And oh, could I know it was given to you!
When Jesus has found you, tell others the story,
That my loving Saviour is your Saviour too;
Then pray that your Saviour may bring them to glory,
And prayer will be answered, ‘twas answered for you!
