Savior

Savior.
How often I carelessly call on this name
ignoring what it cost.

Saviour.
One Who saves.
Jesus -
Who purchased my freedom, my pardon,
my life
on Calvary.

Savior.
A title of honor purchased through shame;
A word of forgiveness bought by punishment;
The name of Life paid for in death.

Here, where I find peace, He knew agony.
This word of love made Him hated.

Jesus, precious Jesus.
Savior

I Peter 2: Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.

Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,

And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
