1. Jesus! What a friend for sinners! Jesus! Lover of my soul; Friends may fail me, foes assail me, He, my Savior, makes me whole. Chorus: Hallelujah! What a Savior! Hallelujah! What a friend! Saving, helping, keeping, loving, He is with me to the end. 2. Jesus! What a strength in weakness! Let me hide myself in Him. Tempted, tried, and often failing, He, my strength, my victory wins. 3. Jesus! What a help in sorrow! While the billows o’er me roll, Even when my heart is breaking, He, my comfort, helps my soul. 4. Jesus! I do now receive Him, More than all in Him I find. He hath granted me forgiveness, I am His, and He is mine.

Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched Weak and wounded, sick and sore Jesus, ready, stands to save you Full of pity, joined with power He is able, He is able He is willing; doubt no more Come ye needy, come, and welcome God's free bounty glorify True belief and true repentance Every grace that brings you nigh Without money, without money Come to Jesus Christ and buy Come, ye weary, heavy laden, Bruised and broken by the fall If you tarry 'til you're better You will never come at all Not the righteous, not the righteous Sinners Jesus came to call Let not conscience make you linger Nor of fitness fondly dream All the fitness He requires Is to feel your need of Him This He gives you, this He gives you 'Tis the Spirit's rising beam Lo! The Incarnate God, ascended Pleads the merit of His blood Venture on Him, venture wholly Let no other trust intrude None but Jesus, none but Jesus Can do helpless sinners good

All I Owe 04:05
When this passing world is done, When has sunk yon glaring sun, When we stand with Christ in glory, Looking o'er life's finished story, Then, Lord, shall I fully know, Not till then, how much I owe. All I owe you paid for me From all I owe I’ve been set free And all I owe proves your great mercy to me When I stand before your throne, Dressed in beauty not my own, When I see you as you are Love you with unsinning heart, Then, Lord, shall I fully know, Not till then, how much I owe. All I owe you paid for me From all I owe I’ve been set free And all I owe proves your great mercy to me Chosen not for good in me, Wakened up from wrath to flee, Hidden in the Savior's side, By the Spirit sanctified, Teach me, Lord, on earth to show, By my love, how much I owe. All I owe you paid for me From all I owe I’ve been set free And all I owe proves your great mercy to me

1. ’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, Just to take Him at His word; Just to rest upon His promise, Just to know “Thus saith the Lord!” Chorus: Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him! How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! O for grace to trust Him more! 2. O how sweet to trust in Jesus, Just to trust His cleansing blood; Just in simple faith to plunge me ’Neath the healing, cleansing flood! 3. Yes ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus, Just from sin and self to cease; Just from Jesus simply taking Life and rest, and joy and peace. 4. I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee, Precious Jesus, Savior, friend; And I know that Thou art with me, Wilt be with me to the end.
