Full Text

1 My sins appear in dark array;
I have no hope of heaven;
I've nought wherewith my debt to pay,
Oh, can I be forgiven?

Chorus:
Save, save, O Jesus, save,
Save a poor sinner while crying,
Save, save, O Jesus, save,
Save a poor sinner from dying!

2 I know 'tis just that I should die;
My guilt I now confess;
But to thy Son I lift mine eye,--
For his sake wilt thou bless.
[Chorus]

3 In his own body on the tree,
He bore my guilt and shame;
'Twas there he suffered death for me,
I plead alone his name.
[Chorus]

4 Thy law would shut me up in hell;
But thanks, O God, to thee,
My Saviour died that I might tell
How grace can make me free.
[Chorus]
