Representative Text

1 I'll sing of the story,
how Jesus from glory
Has saved a poor sinner like me;
That all who believe Him,
and all who receive Him,
His blessed salvation may see.

Chorus:
Then sing the glad chorus,
His banner is o'er us,
His love is extended,
To save a poor sinner like me.

2 His glory immortal
bright over the portal,
Has banished the gloom from the grave;
The Lord has ascended,
the darkness is ended
And now He is mighty to save. [Chorus]

3 Tho' seasons of error
and moments of terror,
Like billows of sorrow may roll;
In Christ I'm confiding,
In Him I am hiding,
With safety and rest to my soul. [Chorus]

4 My peace like a river
flows onward forever,
A tide to eternity's sea,
To swell the old story
with voices in glory,
He saved a poor sinner like me. [Chorus]
