1 The loving Saviour found me
Upon the mountain cold;
He threw his arms around me,
And brought me to the fold.
His love he freely gave me,
His precious blood applied;
He did it all to save me,
And I am satisfied.

Refrain:
I’m satisfied, satisfied,
I’m satisfied with Jesus, the One who died for me;
I’m satisfied, satisfied,
I’m satisfied with Jesus, for he makes me free.

2 The Saviour lingered near me
When on the mountain wild;
When others seemed to fear me,
He owned me for his child.
With tenderness he took me,
When others turned aside;
He saved and ne’er forsook me,
And I am satisfied. [Refrain]

3 I’ll never, never leave him,
Forget, nor turn away;
I’ll love, adore, believe him,
I’ll trust him and obey;
I’ll go where’er he leads me,
Be ever at his side,
And work where’er he needs me,
For I am satisfied. [Refrain]
