I Can Never Pay the Debt I Owe

I never can pay the debt I owe

Tune: [I never can pay the debt I owe]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 I never can pay the debt I owe,
To my blest, redeeming Lord,
Who suffered and died, His love to show,
And fulfill his sacred word.

Chorus:
I never can pay the debt I owe,
But this, bless God I'll do,
I'll serve him while here on earth below,
And prove that my soul is true.

2 I never can pay the debt I owe,
For the blood He shed for me,
For sorrow and pain, for grief and woe,
He endured upon the tree. [Chorus]

3 I never can pay the debt I owe,
For his love, his care and pain,
He suffered himself on earth to know,
My poor dying soul to gain. [Chorus]

4 I never can pay the debt I owe,
Blessed Master pity me,
Thy mercy on me once more bestow,
In a blessing full and free. [Chorus]
