Full Text

1 From the throne of his glory
The Saviour came down,
To seek a sinner like me;
That I, like a jewel,
Might shine in his crown,
Resplendent forever to be.

For me, for me,
Seeking a sinner like me;
The Saviour left all to save my poor soul,
Seeking a sinner like me.

2 On the earth when he wandered,
Rejected of men;
He sought a sinner like me;
Far over the mountains,
And down thro’ the fen,
That bro’t to his fold I might be. [Refrain]

3 When he cried in his anguish
On Calvary’s cross,
Then he was seeking for me;
He cried, “It is finished!”
And bore pain and loss
That I his salvation might see. [Refrain]
