I was straying, rebellious, far off from my God;
I was vile as a sinner could be.

I was straying, rebellious, far off from my God;
I was vile as a sinner could be.
But my Father in mercy sent forth a Redeemer,
              Just to save a poor sinner like me.
              Just to save a lost sinner like me.
              Just to save a vile sinner like me.
God my Father in pity poured out all his mercy,
              Just to save a poor sinner like me.
             

I was selfish and cared not a thing for my God,
              For his glory was nothing to me;
But my guilty lost soul was still dear to my Father,
              And he sent his salvation for me.
              Just to save a lost sinner like me,
              Just to save a vile sinner like me,
Christ my Saviour in grace shed his blood for my ransom,
              Just to save a poor sinner like me.

I was wandering farther and farther from God;
              From his mercy and love did I flee.
But he drew me and won me by his word and Spirit,
              And he saved a poor sinner like me.
 Yes, he saved a lost sinner like me;
              Yes, he saved a vile sinner like me;
By the gospel he won me by his Holy Spirit,
              And he saved a poor sinner like me.

Are you wandering still far away from your God?
              Do you grieve him with all that you do?
Know that Christ is the Saviour of penitent sinners,
              And he’ll save a poor sinner like you.
              Yes, he’ll save a lost sinner like you;
              Yes, he’ll save a vile sinner like you;
Though you’ve dared his fierce anger and spurned all his mercy,
              Still he’ll save a poor sinner like you.
