Savior of Sinners

Representative Text

1 Christ is the Savior of sinners,
Christ is the Savior for me;
Long I was chained in sin’s darkness,
Now by His grace I am free.

Savior of sinners,
Savior of sinners like me,
Shedding His blood for my ransom,
Christ is the Savior for me.

2 Now I can say I am pardoned,
Happy and justified, free,
Saved by my blessed Redeemer,
This is the Savior for me. [Chorus]

3 Just as I was He received me,
Seeking from judgment to flee,
Now there is no condemnation,
This is the Savior for me. [Chorus]

4 Soon shall the glory be dawning,
Then His own face I shall see,
Sing, O my soul, in thy gladness,
This is the Savior for me. [Chorus]
