Representative Text

1 My Saviour came when I was lost,
And rescued me at fearful cost,
No other could my soul restore,
But Christ, who bade me sin no more.

Refrain:
He paid in full,
He paid in full,
My Saviour paid my debt in full,
His blood hath made my sin like wool,
My Saviour paid my debt in full.

2 And since I saw Him on the cross,
One aim, one hope, my heart engross;
To give a service glad and free,
To Him who suffered all for me. [Refrain]

3 To seek for souls who die in need,
My Saviour’s love and grace to plead;
To spread the sweetness of His love,
His cleansing, saving pow’r to prove. [Refrain]
