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.

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]
