I was once far away


    • I was once far away from the Saviour 
    • and as vile as a sinner could be; 
    • and 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, ‘Christ the Redeemer has power 
    • to save a poor sinner like thee.’ 

    • I listened: and lo! „twas the Saviour 
    • that was speaking so kindly to me; 
    • I cried, ‘I‟m the chief of sinners, 
    • Thou canst save a poor sinner like me!’ 

    • I then fully trusted in Jesus; 
    • and oh, what 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. ......
