He heard my prayer

A sinner lost, and yet I came

Full Text

1 A sinner lost, and yet I came,
With all my guilt oppressed,
And, kneeling down at Jesus’ feet,
I prayed to him for rest.

I prayed in faith: he heard my prayer,
My weight of guilt he bore;
He saved me then,—he saves me now,
And saves me evermore.

2 A sinner lost,—O fearful state!
But this my only plea,
Dear Saviour, thou hast died for all,
Have mercy, Lord, on me. [Refrain]

3 A sinner bound in captive chains,
But Jesus set me free,
And taught my heart with joy to sing
His precious love to me. [Refrain]

4 A sinner lost, redeemed by grace;
My latest song shall be,
All praise to him who shed his blood
To purchase life for me. [Refrain]
