I'm a Saved sinner

Representative Text

1 I’m a saved sinner! I know it well;
All the sad story to Him I tell;
He who on Calv’ry my sorrows bore,
Tenderly whispers: “Go, sin no more!”

I’m a saved sinner! O praise His name,
He’s a great Savior—His love proclaim!
Bearing my burden, He took my place!
I’m a saved sinner! O wondrous grace!

2 I’m a saved sinner! He heard my cry
When I was helpless, and ready to die;
Swiftly on pinions of love He came
Seeking, and found me! O praise His name! [Refrain]

3 I’m a saved sinner, but saved to serve!
From my King’s orders no more to swerve.
Oh, to be loyal to Him I love!
Oh, to bring others to shine above! [Refrain]

4 I’m a saved sinner! Yes, saved by grace!
Saved to help others to run the race.
Trusting His keeping while here below,
Saved for His glory, His pow’r to show. [Refrain]
