Tune: "Jesus, Refuge of the Weary" (O du Liebe)
Suggested Usage: General, Stewardship
Jesus, Savior Ever Near Me
Savior ever near me,
Jesus, Savior whom I love,
All my life I’ll e’er adore You,
Who gives all things from above.
As I view Your cross and mercy,
As I now Your love recall,
Warm my heart to love and serve You—
Give my life, my love, my all.
cross You bore my weakness,
Died for my iniquity,
Paid for all my guilt and wand’rings,
By Your blood sin’s debt is freed.
Now, I hear You ever calling,
“Take Your cross and follow Me.”
Lord, I’ll leave my worldly riches,
For Your wealth eternally.
Jesus, You I’ll follow,
And this day I make my vow.
All my time, my talents, treasures,
I will lay before You now.
By Your grace and Spirit lead me,
Lord to serve You and adore.
Lord, You loved me without measure,
Let me love You more and more.
