|142 - This is why I love my Savior|
Shall I tell you why I ceased from folly?
Why I turned away from sin?
'Twas because the love of my Redeemer
Fully won my heart to Him.
|Refrein||This is why I love my Savior,|
This is why I love my Savior, why I love to follow Him,
Why I love to follow Him;
This is why I love my Savior, why I love to follow Him;
For He died my soul to ransom,
For He died my soul to ransom, oh, He died my soul to ransom,
And He washed me from my sin.
And He washed me from, He washed me from my sin.
Do you ask me why I seek no pleasure|
In the things I once did love?
'Tis because I've tasted life's pure river,
Flowing from the throne above.
Would you bid me give to all a reason|
Of the hope I now possess?
It is Christ in me the hope of glory,
And His perfect holiness.
Though all men may look on me with wonder,|
At the change that's taken place;
I will walk the downward road no longer,
Bless the Lord for saving grace.
