O WHAT A SAVIOR (Marvin P. Dalton) Recorded by : The Cathedrals; Brian Free. Once I was straying in sinís dark valley No hope within could I see They searched through Heaven And found a Savior To save a poor lost soul like me. Chorus O what a Savior, O hallelujah His heart was broken on Calvary His hands were nail scarred His side was riven He gave His life-blood for even me. Deathís chilly water Iíll soon be crossing His hand will lead me safe o're Iíll join the chorus in that great city And sing up there for evermore. Chorus O what a Savior, O hallelujah His heart was broken on Calvary His hands were nail scarred His side was riven He gave His life-blood for even me.
