Wandering Ohio’s woodlands

All alone and unafraid.

Getting my first check for working,

Such a grown-up way to get paid. [1]

 

Staring at the dorm-room ceiling

City-lit — where I was used to dark.

Seeing Cincy from the Tower,

Playing tennis in the park.

 

Eating cookies, drinking hot drink,

After door bells, looking for a “winner.”

Smelling turkey strong in Tuesday’s air;

Preparing for Hilltop’s big day dinner.

I was lost in sin, but Jesus rescued me,
He’s a wonderful Savior to me;
I was bound by fear, but Jesus set me free,
He’s a wonderful Savior to me.

For He’s a wonderful Savior to me,
He’s a wonderful Savior to me;
I was lost in sin, but Jesus took me in:
He’s a wonderful Savior to me.

He’s a Friend so true, so patient and so kind,
He’s a wonderful Savior to me;
Everything I need in Him I always find,
He’s a wonderful Savior to me.

He is always near to comfort and to cheer,
He’s a wonderful Savior to me;
He forgives my sins, He dries my every tear,
He’s a wonderful Savior to me.

Dearer grows the love of Jesus day by day,
He’s a wonderful Savior to me.
Sweeter is His grace while pressing on my way,
He’s a wonderful Savior to me.
