1 Lord, and am I yet alive,
Not in torments, not in hell!
Still doth thy good Spirit strive!--
With the chief of sinners dwell!
Tell it unto sinners, tell,
I am, I am out of hell!

2 Yes, I still lift up mine eyes,
Will not of thy love despair;
Still in spite of sin I rise,
Still I bow to thee in prayer.
Tell it unto sinners, tell,
I am, I am out of hell!

3 O the length and breadth of love!
Jesus, Saviour, can it be!
All thy mercy's height I prove,
All the depth is seen in me.
Tell it unto sinners, tell,
I am, I am out of hell!

4 See a bush, that burns with fire,
Unconsum'd amid the flame!
Turn aside the sight t'admire,
I the living wonder am.
Tell it unto sinners, tell,
I am, I am out of hell!

5 See a stone that hangs in air!
See a spark in ocean live!
Kept alive with death so near,
I to God the glory give:
Ever tell--to sinners tell,
I am, I am out of hell!
