Jesus Holy Savior Tender (Johnson)
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.
