Representative Text

1 O Jesus, O Jesus, how vast thy love to me!
I’ll bathe in its full ocean to all eternity;
And wending on to Glory this all my song shall be:
I was a guilty sinner, but Jesus died for me.

2 O Calvary, O Calvary, the thorn, the crown, the spear!
‘Tis there thy love, my Jesus, in flowing wounds appears;
O depths of love and mercy, to those dear wounds I flee;
I was a guilty sinner, but Jesus died for me.

3 I’m coming, I’m coming, dear Jesus, to thy throne,
A few more fleeting hours and I shall be at home;
And when I reach those pearly gates then I’ll put in this plea:
I was a guilty sinner, but Jesus died for me.

4 In Glory, in Glory, for ever with the Lord,
I’ll tune my harp and with the saints will sing in sweet accord;
And as I strike those golden strings, this all my theme shall be:
I was a guilty sinner, but Jesus pardoned me.
