74. He Pardoned a Rebel Like Me

1 I heard of a Savior whose love was so great
He laid down his life on the tree;
The thorns they were pierc’d in his beautiful brow
To pardon a rebel like me.

Refrain:
He pardon’d a rebel like me,
He pardon’d a rebel like me;
The thorns they were pierc’d in his beautiful brow
To pardon a rebel like me.

2 They tell me he wept over sinners one day,
“If only they knew what I do!
How oft would I gather you under my wing
And pardon poor rebels like you.” [Refrain]

3 That wondrous compassion has broken my heart
And bro’t me, dear Jesus, to Thee;
I know when I came Thou wouldst not cast me out,
But pardon a rebel like me. [Refrain]

4 ‘Tis true! wretched sinners right freely He saves,
And you He will not cast away;
The life everlasting He waits to bestow:,
O come to your Savior today. [Refrain]
