1. A sinner more wretched than I,
There could not be;
’Till Jesus the mighty, came nigh,
To set me free,
I opened my heart to His call,
His own to be,
And when I surrendered all,
My Lord saved me.

Refrain
He’s able and willing to save,
Able, willing,
He’s able and willing to save,
For He saved me.

2. His power no limit can know,
His grace is mine;
His love He is willing to show,
’Tis love divine;
His mercy is offered today,
So full, so free,
He’ll never turn you away,
For He saved me. [Refrain]

3. He’s able and willing to go
O’er mountains steep,
Or down in the valley so low,
Or stormy deep:
If willing His bidding to do,
His own you’ll be,
I know He can keep you true,
For He keeps me.
