A SINNER LIKE ME




I was once far away from the Saviour,
And as vile as a sinner could be,
|: I wondered if Christ the Redeemer
Could save a poor sinner like me. :|


I wandered on in the darkness,
Not a ray of light could I see:
|: And the thought filled my heart with sadness,
There’s no hope for a sinner like me. :|


And then, in that dark lonely hour,
A voice sweetly whispered to me,
|: Saying, “Look unto Me! I have power
To save a poor sinner like thee.” :|


I listened: and lo! ‘Twas the Saviour
That was speaking so kindly to me;
|: And I cried, “I’m the chief of sinners:
Canst Thou save a poor sinner like me?” :|


I then fully trusted in Jesus;
And oh, now a joy came to me!
|: My heart was filled with His praises,
For saving a sinner like me. :|


No longer in darkness I’m walking,
For the light is now shining on me;
|: And now unto others I’m telling
How He saved a poor sinner like me. :|


And when life’s journey is over,
And I the dear Saviour shall see,
|: I’ll praise Him for ever and ever,
For saving a sinner like me! :|


---Alternative verses---


And then, in that dark lonely hour,
A voice sweetly whispered to me,
|: Saying, Christ the Redeemer has power,
To save a poor sinner like thee.” :|
