I need not fear (Greater Saviour)

Added 6th March 2009


If you’re a fan of what we do, would you consider supporting us with a one-off or regular gift?
Resound Worship is a ministry of the Song and Hymn Writers Foundation, a charity dedicated to publishing quality worship songs as well as training, resourcing and influencing worship songwriters from the grass roots to published composers. We’d really value your support.

1.I need not fear, though greatly I've sinned,
for I have a greater Saviour.
Death holds no power, oh where is its sting?
I have a greater Saviour.

2.I cannot hide the depth of my shame,
but you are a greater Saviour.
Over my failings your promise remains;
you are a greater Saviour.

And I will give glory and praise to your name;
so great is the mercy that lifted my shame.
No matter how burdened, my heart will proclaim:
you are a greater Saviour,
you are a greater Saviour.

3.Jesus, my hope for all of my days,
there is no greater Saviour.
To you be all power, all honour and praise;
there is no greater Saviour.

Jesus, no-one, no-one is greater than you.
My Saviour, no-one, no-one is greater than you.

I stumbled across a quote by the hymn writer, and slave-trade abolitionist, John Newton. On his death-bed, he is credited as having said "My memory is nearly gone, but I remember two things — that I am a great sinner, and that Christ is a great Saviour". Those words struck me as an incredibly succinct summary of the gospel - that no matter how great our sin, the saving grace of Christ can, has and will always cover it.
