Praise the Savior, ye who know Him

1
Praise the Savior, ye who know Him!
Who can tell how much we owe Him?
Gladly let us render to Him
  All we are and have.
2
Jesus is the name that charms us;
He for conflicts fits and arms us;
Nothing moves and nothing harms us
  When we trust in Him.
3
Trust in Him, ye saints, forever;
He is faithful, changing never;
Neither force nor guile can sever
  Those He loves from Him.
4
Keep us, Lord, oh, keep us cleaving
To Thyself and still believing,
Till the hour of Thy receiving
  The victorious Bride.
5
Then we shall be where we would be;
Then we shall be what we should be;
Things which are not now, nor could be,
  Then shall be our own.

I found myself singing a verse of this in bed last night and couldn’t remember all the words. I found them after typing the ones I could remember into safari. When I first became a Christian many years ago we would sing it at church using the Redemption Hymnal. Song No 52.

The last line of verse 4 was (Till the hour of our receiving promised joys in heaven.

I would love to hear more of these beautiful old hymns sung in church today. They are so full of the truth of the gospel.

We also sang, as the last 2 lines of 4th stanza, "'Till the hour of our receiving Promised joys with Thee!" Also, on the last stanza, 4th line, we sang, "SOON shall be our own!"

This is such a great song. We used to sing it both at home with my parents n in church.

This morning it has come with so much revelation of the wonderful work of the cross n what was accomplished on that day when our Lord n Saviour hang thereon.

Lord help us to love you more.

Thought the last 2 lines of verse 4 was "til the hour of our receiving promised joys with thee." That is what I learned as a child. Thank you for the text, however. Refreshed my memory and my spirit.

This is a great song that encourages me to praise my Lord Jesus Christ. It touches my heart more if I sing it in mother's tongue thus: "Muhonokia arogocwo ni ithui andu ake kai tungimenya thiri witu na Jesu"

The Lord brought this hymn to my remembrance today. As a small child I remember singing this often at our Brethren church service.

My Dad used to sing this, and I found myself singing it this morning. I couldn't remember all the lyrics and wondered if Dad had made it up! I was so pleased to find it here. Thank you.
