Representative Text

1 I praise the Lord that one like me
For mercy may to Jesus flee,
He says that whosoever will
May seek and find salvation still.

Refrain:
My Saviour’s promise faileth never;
He counts me in the Whosoever.
My Saviour’s promise faileth never;
He counts me in the Whosoever.

2 I was to sin a wretched slave,
But Jesus died my soul to save;
He says that whosoever will
May seek and find salvation still. [Refrain]

3 I look by faith and see this word,
Stamped with the blood of Christ my Lord,
He says that whosoever will
May seek and find salvation still. [Refrain]

4 I now believe he saves my soul,
His precious blood hath made me whole;
He says that whosoever will
May seek and find salvation still. [Refrain]
