I Know

Representative Text

1 I know the Redeemer is mighty,
His grace and His mercy are free;
When I was a stranger He sought me,
He came, in His mercy to me.

2 For pardon, for peace, and for cleansing,
I bring but His Name as my plea;
His blood hath atoned for the sinner,
That fountain was opened for me.

3 His grace will avail for the lowest,
And all who will trust Him will see
How great is the love of the Savior,
Who ransomed as sinner like me.

4 The wonderful gift of salvation,
I know He will give unto thee;
He longs in His love to bestow it,
I know—for He gave it to me.

5 His servants at last shall behold Him;
O gracious and royal decree!
To you is the glad invitation,
Come, trust Him, and meet Him with me
