Representative Text

1 I was once far away from the Saviour,
And his face was not smiling on me;
I wondered if Christ, the Redeemer,
Would save a poor sinner like me.

Refrain:
Would save a poor sinner like me,
Would save a poor sinner like me,
I wondered if Christ, the Redeemer,
Would save a poor sinner like me.

2 I was long in that sad night of darkness,
Not a bright ray of light could I see;
This thought filled my poor heart with sadness,
No hope for a sinner like me. [Refrain]

3 But there in that dark lonely hour,
Came a voice sweetly whispering to me,
Saying Christ, the Redeemer, hath power
To save a poor sinner like me. [Refrain]

4 I listened, and lo! 'twas the Saviour,
Then speaking so kindly to me;
And now unto others I'm telling,
How He saved a poor sinner like me. [Refrain]

5 I then fully trusted in Jesus,
And oh, what a joy came to me;
My heart it was filled with His praises,
For saving a sinner like me. [Refrain]

6 And when this life's journey is over,
And I the dear Saviour shall see;
I'll praise Him forever and ever,
For saving a sinner like me. [Refrain]
