1 On Jesus the Saviour my sins have been laid,
He pardoned a sinner like me;
The debt which I owed, by His love has been paid,
He pardoned a sinner like me.

Refrain:
A sinner like me, a sinner like me,
He pardoned a sinner like me,
A sinner like me, a sinner like me,
He pardoned a sinner like me.

2 I saw how He suffered and died in my place,
He pardoned a sinner like me;
No longer my heart turns away from His grace,
He pardoned a sinner like me. [Refrain]

3 He showed me my sin and the price it had cost,
He pardoned a sinner like me,
‘Twas there at the cross all my burden I lost,
He pardoned a sinner like me. [Refrain]
