Jesus Holy Savior Tender (Johnson)

Music for Choirs, Submitted Music (1992-1997)

Jesus, holy savior tender,

wrap thine arms around my care

Hold it while I tremble onward.

Let it no my feet ensnare.

Watch me as I struggle forward,

Help me as I cry to Thee,

Let me feel Thy spirit

ever as thy child I come to Thee.


Always upward I am striving,

Always I Thy face do seek,

Always better world I’m hoping

for the humble mild and meek.

Faith in Thee has been my watch-cry,

Hope on grace has been my strength

Living for the promised blessing

to be healed and saved at length.


Never leave my side, dear Savior,

I could never live alone

Without loving arms around me

Or thy smile from heaven’s done.

How I long to sing Thy praises

With celestial worlds on high,

Holy Father, tender Savior,

couldst Thy throne for e’er be nigh.
