109. I Was a Guilty Sinner

1 Lord Jesus! my Savior! how vast Thy love to me;
I’ll bathe in its full ocean to all eternity,
And wending on to glory this all my song shall be:
“I was a guilty sinner, but Jesus died for me.”

2 O Calv’ry! O Calv’ry; the thorn-crown and the spear
There doth Thy love, Lord Jesus, in bleeding wounds appear;
Oh, depths of grace and mercy, to those dear wounds I flee;
“I was a guilty sinner, but Jesus died for me.”

3 Adore Him, adore Him, the glorious work is done;
And now He’ll not condemn me, ‘twas laid upon His Son;
‘Tis finished cried the Savior, and I my title see;
“I was a guilty sinner, but Jesus died for me.”

4 In glory, in glory, “forever with the Lord,”
I’ll tune my harp with others, and sing with sweet accord;
And as we praise together, this all my song shall be:
“I was a guilty sinner, but Jesus died for me.”
