Oh, What a Savior!
When I first heard “O What a Savior” it brought me to tears. Over a decade later, I still love to listen to and sing the song.
It caused me to wonder about the origin of this beautiful song.
I couldn’t find a lot of information, but did discover it was written by musician Marvin P. Dalton in 1948.
Dalton was born on March 9, 1906 in Arkansas and married Audrey Pauli in 1932. He wrote at least fifteen poems or songs and died on November 28, 1987 in Tulsa County, Oklahoma.
The song has been covered by the Cathedrals and Ernie Haase & Signature Sound.
I’m so glad he gave his life’s blood for this rebel and redeemed my life.
