Representative Text

1 “Saved for a purpose,” O Lord, can it be,
That Thou wilt use a poor sinner like me?
Guilty and wretched, all sin-stain’d and vile,
Thou hast redeemed me, I live in Thy smile.

“Saved for a purpose,” O Lord, make me Thine!
Now and forever, by power divine;
Once a vile sinner, praise God now I am
Cleansed and redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.

2 “Saved for a purpose,” O Lord, I would use
My ransomed powers to tell the glad news;
Jesus once suffered on Calvary’s tree,
Dying for sinners, that they might be free. [Refrain]

3 “Saved for a purpose,” O Lord, I am weak,
For each glad service, Thy strength I would seek;
Wisdom to guide me, and love to impel,
As the sweet story of Jesus I tell. [Refrain]
