698. Only a Sinner

1 Naught have I gotten but what I received;
Grace hath bestowed it since I have believed;
Boasting excluded, pride I abase;
I'm only a sinner saved by grace!

Refrain:
Only a sinner saved by grace!
Only a sinner saved by grace!
This is my story, to God be the glory,-
I'm only a sinner saved by grace!

2 Once I was foolish, and sin ruled my heart,
Causing my footsteps from God to depart;
Jesus hath found me, happy my case;
I now am a sinner saved by grace! [Refrain]

3 Tears unavailing, no merit had I;
Mercy had saved me, or else I must die;
Sin had alarmed me, fearing God's face;
But now I'm a sinner saved by grace! [Refrain]

4 Suffer a sinner whose heart overflows,
Loving his Saviour to tell what he knows,
Once more to tell it, would I embrace-
I'm only a sinner saved by grace! [Refrain]
