Representative Text

1 The Saviour’s own word tells the story,
Of love so boundless and free;
And, oh, how I wonder if Jesus,
Who died for the sinner, loves me?

Oh, yes, yes, dearly He loves me!
This Jesus tenderly loves me;
A Saviour who died for all sinners,
Oh, I know that Jesus loves me!

2 I seek Him, tho’ I am unworthy
To ask in His kingdom to be;
Transgressions and sins, oh, how many!
Can I expect Christ to love me. [Refrain]

3 Oh, what can a merciful Father
In this, His poor prodigal, see?
And will He thus pass the more worthy,
To save such a sinner like me? [Refrain]

4 Oh, what a most wonderful story!
How others more happy could be;
In trusting this gracious Redeemer,
Who, loving the sinner, loves me. [Refrain]
