1 When Jesus laid His crown aside,
He came to save me;
When on the cross He bled and died,
He came to save me.

Chorus:
I’m so glad, I’m so glad,
I’m so glad that Jesus came,
And grace is free,
I’m so glad, I’m so glad,
I’m so glad that Jesus came,
He came to save me.

2 In my poor heart He deigns to dwell,
He came to save me;
O praise His name, I know it well,
He came to save me. [Chorus]

3 With gentle hand He leads me still,
He came to save me;
And trusting Him, I fear no ill,
He came to save me. [Chorus]

4 To Him my faith with rapture clings,
He came to save me;
To Him my heart looks up and sings,
He came to save me. [Chorus]
