Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

I'm a Saved sinner

Full 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!”

Refrain:
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]
