1 A Saviour who died our salvation to win,
A Saviour who knows how to save us from sin,—
Yes, He is the Saviour, that Saviour we need,
And He is a Saviour indeed!

Refrain:
Is He yours? is He yours?
Is this Saviour, who loves you, yours?

2 A Shepherd who giveth His life for the sheep,
A Shepherd both mighty to save and to keep,—
Yes, this is the Shepherd, the Shepherd we need,
And He is a Shepherd indeed! [Refrain]

3 A Pilot who knoweth the dangers at hand,
A Pilot who bringeth all vessels to land,—
Yes, this is the Pilot, the Pilot we need,
And He is a Pilot indeed! [Refrain]

4 A Shelter from tempest, from wind and from storm,
A Shelter from judgment, a Shelter from harm,—
Yes, this is the Shelter, the Shelter we need,
And He is a Shelter indeed! [Refrain]
