1 Many years I wandered,
A sinner far from home,
Weary, heavy-laden,
Full satisfied to roam;
But Jesus came in mercy,
Tho’ bound, He set me free,
His blessed “whosoever,”
I know included me.

Refrain:
I am saved!
I am saved!
When the Lord said “whosoever,”
He included me,
I am saved!
I am saved!
When the Lord said “whosoever,”
He included me.

2 Though so weak and guilty,
He woke my heart to song,
Gave me strength and courage,
To follow Him along;
Whene’er I saw the nail-prints,
The marks of Calvary,
His blessed “whosoever,”
I know included me. [Refrain]

3 Looking up to Jesus,
On Him I rest my soul,
Trusting in His promise,
My life He doth control;
The highest joy of heaven,
Will be His face to see,
His blessed “whosoever,”
I know included me. [Refrain]
