He Pardoned a Rebel Like Me

I heard of a Savior whose love was so great that he laid do

Representative Text

1 I heard of a Saviour whose love was so great
That he laid down his life on the tree;
The thorns they were pierced on his beautiful brow
To pardon a rebel like me.

Refrain:
He pardoned a rebel, a rebel like me,
He pardoned a rebel like me.
The thorns they were pierced on his beautiful brow
To pardon a rebel like me.

2 They tell me he wept over sinners one day Saying:
O that your Saviour you knew!
How oft would I gather you under my wing
And pardon poor rebels like you.

3 O love so amazing that broke my hard heart
And brought me, dear Jesus, to thee!
I know, when I came, thou didst not cast me out
But didst pardon a rebel like me.

4 ‘Tis true that poor sinners of all kinds he saves,
And you he will not cast away;
He waits in his mercy sweet peace to bestow,
So come to the fountain today.
