MY Saviour, my Friend, my Redeemer, my King,

How shall I set forth thy high praise?

All glory, all honor, all power, I'll sing,

Be to Jesus, the theme of my lays:

His tender compassion on rebels like me,

His mercies are ever the same;

I'll praise his adorable majesty,

I'll hold fast his excellent name.

Come sinner, believe, and repent, and confess,

And baptized be into this name,

Come, Christian, walk humbly by faith, and be blest,

Submit to the cross and the shame:

By prayer, hope, and love, and sweet meditation,

Live godly in Jesus your Lord;

By constant obedience secure the salvation

Revealed in his heavenly word.
