1 I know I am a sinner in the sight of God,
Afar from where He’d have me go my feet have trod;
But if He will receive me I will turn this day
And walk with Jesus ever in His holy way.

Refrain:
I want to be saved from sin,
Yes, I want to be saved from sin;
And so I’ll raise my hand
For Christ to take me stand,
Yes I want to be saved from sin,
Yes, I want to be saved from sin;
The fold of those now saved by grace
I’ll enter in.

2 I will not doubt His mercy, nor His Savior pow’r,
I’ll put my trust upon Him from this very hour.
I’ll follow where He leads me for I know ‘twill be
The way His love provides for those He has set free. [Refrain]

3 I ask Him now to pardon all that I have done,
That griev’d the Spirit He has sent thro’ Christ the Son,
And help me live a Christian from this present hour,
And keep me ever faithful by His keeping pow’r. [Refrain]
